Kenyir Eco Terengganu, Malaysia

Kenyir Lake

Tasik Kenyir is the largest man-made lake in Southeast Asia, spanning 260,000 hectares.  It is also Malaysia’s largest rock-filled hydroelectric dam. When the area was flooded, most of the hills were above the water level, thus creating about 340 man-made islands.  The rainforest that cradles the area furnishes the lake with an incredible assortment of flora and fauna. 

Attraction & Surround

These include rare ferns, exotic orchids, hornbills, elephants, and panthers. It is also home to flora and fauna. It is a popular retreat for nature lovers as it is surrounded by lush tropical rainforest. It is also an angler’s haven as the lake is home to hundreds of species of freshwater fish.
