There is no exact estimate of the number of species of plants and wildlife existing within this vast ecosystem. Dipterocarpus shrouds the horizon and towering trees of the majestic Keruing, Meranti and Kapor loom above, while exotic animals roam freely below. For research scientists, nature lovers, adventurers and keen photographers, Kenyir promises to be a world of discovery.

 

The highest peak in Lake Kenyir itself is Mount Chergau. Meanwhile Mount Gagau, with an elevation of 4,514 feet above sea-level, is the second highest peak in Taman Negara ( National Park). Expeditions to Mount Gagau have been shown to be an exhilarating experience. For the many who have scaled this mountain, ii is truly an memorable event.
