Temanggor Dam – Fishing, Hiking and Houseboat Journeys

The constructed Pedu Dam and lake has two resodts on its remote and forested foreshores. The rustic charm of the accommodation is complemented by a range of adventurous activities on the water and surrounding forest.

Rural roads near Pedu Lake weave their way east through to Baling and from here the scenic route winds its way to Keroh and the Thai border town of Betong.

Continuing on for 50 km, the township of Gerik is the junction for the road from Kuala Kangsar, 108km to the south. The highway from Gerik travels east and passes the settlement of Banding, the huge Temenggor Dam and the Belum wilderness. Fishing, hiking and extended treks or houseboat journeys into the Lower Belum are possible. 160km from Gerik the highway reaches Tanah Merah on the Kelantan River. The train from Singapore to Kota Bharu (Tumpat) also passes here.
