GEOFOREST PARK

The Mat Cincang Cambrian

 

Mat Cincang Cambrian Geoforest Park hosts the oldest geological formation in Malaysia known as the Mat Cincang Formation (550 million years old). Among the important geosites in the park ore Teluk Datai (where the oldest grains of sand rest), Pantai Tengkorak (where old continent has been submerged - exhibiting text book examples of sedimentary structures) .Tanjung Buta / Pulau Jemuruk (graveyards of the oldest life forms in the country) and Tanjung Sabung (where the limestone succeeds sandstone).

 
 

Also located within this park are some natural wonders resulted from recent geological process such as the Temurun and Telaga Tujuh Waterfall, remnant islands of Anak Burau and Anak Datai ,and beautiful beaches in Teluk Datai and Pantai Kok . The Mat Cincang peak exhibits peculiarly chopped sandstone that has often been related to the old folk myth of the brawl between two giants, the Mat Cincang and Mat Raya. The Mat Cincang ridges can be classified as one of the most beautiful landscape in the islands.
