Kenyir Lake

Waterfalls, Camping

There are many breathtaking waterfalls in Tasik Kenyir. Creating a cool, relaxing, and rejuvenating ambience, visitors will love picnicking at these falls. The waterfalls in Kenyir Lake are well shaded by the leafy green canopy of the Tropical Rainforest. Currently, there are no basic amenities such as restrooms, but plans are already being undertaken to accommodate for such facilities. Apart from that, these falls are also ideal for camping.

Lasir, located 16km to the south of Pengkalan Gawi, is one of the most popular picnic spots in Tasik Kenyir. It has a magnificent fall of some 500ft. Lasir drops gracefully onto a multi-tiered level of boulders and rocks, forming cascading showers of foaming white sprays of water.

Another waterfall, Saok, is fast gaining popularity amongst visitors to Kenyir Lake. Cascading waters over its rocky terraces and boulders and a flat sandy area at ground level make it a perfect picnic spot for the whole family.

Unlike Lasir and Saok, Tembat waterfall is made up of five fast flowing rapids. It has a large camping area at the side and is thus a popular destination for campers. There is a hiking trail that leads to the top of the fall with a magnificent view of the waterfall and its surroundings.

Other waterfalls within Tasik Kenyir are the Petang, Leban, Terenggan, Lata Terap and Petuang.


Apart from picnicking, the hilly regions of the lake bring visitors to a world of untouched, virgin jungles that are estimated to be millions of years old. Research scientists, nature lovers, adventurers, and keen photographers will find Kenyir a promising world of discovery. The highest altitude in Kenyir Lake is Mount Chergau. Other peaks include the Bongsu, Tembat, Raung, Kachang, Gagau, and Gajah Terom. The mountainous tropical rain forest offers tremendous Eco-tourism potential. Hence, to ensure that it is well preserved, facilities such as ranger stations, base camps, and hiking trails are in the process of development. Should visitors choose to venture into these hilly regions, it is advisable to consult the relevant authorities.


Two limestone hills that abound with mysteries and legends are Bewah and Taat. Although occasionally covered by spooky mists, these hills provide some of the most spectacular sights in Tasik Kenyir. Taat has three caves with the lowest entrance, Tok Bidan Cave, now submerged underwater. Archeologists and historians have uncovered artifacts such as kitchen utensils, axes, and tools that date back to the Neolithic era. Taat Caves can be explored through two visible entrances while the nearby Bewah Cave has only one entrance. Inside, these caves offer extraordinary sights of stalactites and stalagmites. Authorities are planning to conduct further excavations to unravel the mysteries and secrets of the caves.
