Tasik Kenyir and the mountains beyond

Kenyir Lake (Tasik Kenyir) is a reservoir lake formed from the damming of the Kenyir River in Ulu (upriver) Terengganu, Malaysia.


Kenyir Lake is very large and contains some islands. There is a breathtaking view from the top of the dam, and many visitors hire a boat to see the rest. There are also caves and a small waterfall nearby.

Because of Tasik Kenyir's inland location and moderate elevation above sea level, its climate is somewhat cooler and moister than on the seacoast.

Get in[edit]
