Located in Gerik and covering 15,200 hectares, Temenggor Lake is
the largest man-made lake in Perak. The panoramic beauty of the
lake is complemented by the diverse flora and fauna. This enchanting
atmosphere is further enhanced by the unique lifestyle of the ‘orang
asli' who make their homes in the jungles surrounding the lake.
The lake has a rich source of freshwater fish like Kelah, Tenggalan
and Baung, which although found here are extinct in other places.
This only serves to make Tasik Temenggor a more attractive and important
fishing area in Perak.
Banding Island Resort
The Banding resort, 35km from Grik, is the ideal place for fishing enthusiast and those who really want to get away from it all. This remote resort covers 103.6

for trekking, camping and picnicking. At present, there is a modern restaurant and resthouse which provides comfortable accommodation. Plans are underway for
expansion and improvement ofthe existing facilities.
