Purpose

Tasik Kenyir was born after it was flooded for the purpose of providing water-powered electricity through its only exit - the Sultan Mahmud Hydro Electric Power Plant. Thus, hilltops and highlands were submerged, creating an array of 340 islands, more than 14 waterfalls and numerous rapids, caves and rivers. Tasik Kenyir contains numerous species of freshwater fishes and wildlife, don't worry, no alligators. A myriad of flora and fauna awaits the keen eye adventurer.

Tasik Kenyir is natural paradise at its best. Tranquility, serenity, calmness are mere words that could not even sum up the experience of being there, admiring the sunrise and sunset that utilise protuding trees to cast shadows on waters so peaceful.
