TRACKING IN

TANJUNG MENTONG

(Negeri Terengganu)

 

Entrance from Tanjung Mentong at Tasik Kenyir Lake in Terengganu into Taman Negara is quite different from the rest as it passes through Tasik Kenyir; Southeast Asia?s largest man-made lake at 260,000 hectares and a nature recreation area in itself.

 

A southern arm of the lake lies within Taman Negara containing some interesting caves and submerged forest views not found at the other entryways.

 
 
RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
 

Fishing

Due to the lake environment, there are some great fishing spots here. However, take note that in Sungai Cacing, fishing is off limits as it is a designated breeding area for local species of fish such as kelah.

 

Scenic and Wildlife Photography

Again due to the lake with its submerged jungle trees and many hill islands, this area may afford the opportunity as a photographer?s paradise. Explore the limitless possibilities with a variety of flora and fauna.

 

Cave Exploration

There are 2 important caves, Gua Bewah and Gua Taat. The latter has yielded Stone Age discoveries. Archaeologists have fount! Artifacts such as kitchen utensils, axes and tools dating back to the Neolithic Age (4000 BC). Interestingly, the mouth of the cave would have been high up the hill and was only made more accessible once the man- made Tasik Kenyir filled up.

 

Climb Gunung Gagau

This popular mountain-climbers destination in Taman Negara at 1,300m affords views of all 3 states in the park from its peak.

 
 
 
PERMIT & LICENSE

ACCOMMODATION
