Kenyir Lake Destination Guide
Overview
About 10km from Kuala Serang and about 55 km from Kuala Terengganu is Tasik Kenyir, Asia's largest man-made lake. Covering an area of 369sq.km., it is the site of Malaysia's largest hydroelectric dam.

When the area was inundated with water, most of the hills were above the water level, creating about 340 man-made islands. Surrounded by a lush tropical jungle, the Kenyir Lake is a popular retreat for nature lovers, anglers, photo enthusiasts and fun seekers.

There are facilities for fishing, swimming, canoeing, boating and jungle trekking. The lake has a wide variety of freshwater fish. Accommodation in houseboats, floating chalets and lakeside resorts is available.

Fishing
Everyone who has ever done any fishing will tell you that Kenyir Lake is an angler's heaven. You can hire a speed-boat or perhaps rent a houseboat and stay overnight on the lake.
But remember that a entry permit from the Wildlife Department is needed in the National Park (Taman Negara). You can get one from the Tourist Information Centre at Pengkalan Gawi or at Kuala Berang office.

Waterfalls
Glittering cascades that shower you with clear, cool mountain water amidst a green jungle paradise. Kenyir has more than 14 waterfalls, all beautiful, all worth a visit.
There is Lasir Waterfalls, located 16km to the south of Pengkalan Gawi. Lasir Waterfalls is spectular in their rush down five rapids. A large camping area and a hiking trail up to its top further enhances Lasir's attraction. You also easily kayak over there, right up to its falling waters.
Or take a trip to Saok, only 15 minutes from Pengkalan Gawi. With a flat, sandy area next to the falls, it is ideal for picnickers and campers. Tembat is yet another waterfall worth the trip. It takes 40 minutes to the north of pengkalan Gawi by speedboat. Tembat's waters are spectacular in their rush down cascading gracefully over several tiers.

Jungle Trekking & Camping
Kenyir is surrounded by rainforest, so rich in flora and fauna, with thousands of species calling the area their home. Some of the highlands designated for trekking and camping are Gagau Mountain, Bongsu Moutain and Padang Mountain.
But remember, this is no petting zoo, so follow only marked trails or engage an experienced guide who can lead you safely through this intricate maze, and you will be rewarded with experience rich with information and insights into rainforest's countless secrets and inhabitants.
