TASEK CINI AND TASEK BERA

PAHANG MALAYSIA

Tasek Bera (Pahang)


Located in south-west Pahang, Tasek Bera is a natural freshwater lake system extending 35 km long and 20 km wide and drains into the Pahang River via the Bera River. As the largest freshwater lake in Malaysia, Bera remains a unique and remote wetland wilderness. Surrounded by patches of dry lowland dipterocarp forests, the lake environment stretches its tentacles into islands of peat swamp forests. Rich in wildlife and vegetation, Tasek Bera is an ecosystem which supports a diversity of plant and animal life as well as the native Semelai tribe inhabiting the wetlands.

The lake is now the focus of scientific study and is accorded protection under government and international conventions. The state government has implemented a 3-year programme, with financial assistance from the Danish government as well as technical assistance from Wetlands International Asia Pacific.

Tasek Bera has distinct wet and dry seasons which may determine the best time to visit. It is advisable to visit after the wet season as the lake is good fishing ground after heavy rains. The dry season are February to April and June to August. The lake itself is characterised by a watery landscape dominated by large grass–like blades of pandanus leaves which line the narrow channels leading into the lake. A variety of ferns, orchids and epiphytes can be seen attached to tree trunks and branches, while strands of thorny rattan weave through the undergrowth. Among the high reed and rows of dense foliage in the open water, dozens of pitcher plants hang in shades of green and red. In the drier areas, lowland rainforest trees and palms add to the diversity of the wetland reserve.

The lake and the surrounding areas itself is a sanctuary for more than 200 species of birds, 50 mammals and 90 species of fish. The biologically rich lowland forest, with its diversity of flora and fauna, offer ample opportunities for jungle trekking excursions and nature observation.

 

Tasek Cini (Pahang)

Tasek Cini, 100 km from Kuantan off the Kuantan-Segamat road, is actually a conglomerate of 12 interconnecting lakes. The lake is large and from June to September is covered by a brilliant carpet of red and white lotuses, which contrast sharply with the surrounding green hills. The Jakun tribe lives along the shores of this lake. Besides hunting and gathering jungle produce, they also collect lotus seeds when the flowers on the lake wilt. When ripe the cream-colored seeds, slightly smaller than quails’ eggs, taste distinctly nutty and are a good source of protein.

The lake is never dull. Even the origin of the lake itself is mystifying with the story of how an old woman turned into large black log. Frightened hunters plunged their spears into the log which began to sprout blood that formed a hole in the ground. Water started pouring out from the hole, ultimately creating Lake Cini. Other folklore talk of Loch Ness type monsters swimming in the lake and of a close friendship between an old woman and the lake monsters. Another tale tells of a lost city beneath Cini’s waters and archeological examination proved that the site was once home to a Khmer settlement.
