Tour Description:

Other than Bera Lake, the Chini Lake is the second largest and only other natural freshwater lake in Peninsula Malaysia. Interestingly, both lakes are situated in the state of Pahang.

Located about 100 kilometres from Kuantan, Chini Lake lies wonderfully among 12,565 acres of verdant tropical jungles – making it an important green lung of Malaysia - and consists of a series of 12 lakes. A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve site, Chini Lake is an attraction that is visited by visitors from all over the world due to its rich biodiversity and calm and peaceful surroundings in spite of its mythical tales. According to legend, the still waters of the lake was once home to a mythical dragon that played the role of a guardian of an ancient city of gold that once ruled the land the lake. Nevertheless, this mysterious figure and city were never confirmed by scientific research.

Take this chance to appreciate the breeze that comes from the massive tropical rainforest trees as you cross a narrow river on a Lake Chini boat ride. As you approach the first lake, be greeted by the lotus flowers and the water lilies. Don’t forget to capture photos and videos while you are at the lake because it is an experience that you would want to document and have for keepsake!

On the edge of the lake live an indigenous ‘orang asli’ tribe of Peninsula Malaysia called the Jakun people who have been settlers of the lake for many years. They believe that a dragon called the Naga Seri Gumum (an equivalent of the Loch Ness Monster) is the spirit and guardian of Lake Chini. Pay a visit to the Jakun settlement and observe how a traditional blowpipe, a primary hunting weapon made out of bamboo, is made by the aboriginal Jakuns.
