Boat Trip, Perak River & Lake Chenderoh, Lenggong Valley.

A wonderful 2-hour boat trip down the Perak River and into Lake Chenderoh and many of the small backwaters was a great way to view typical kampung life in this area of Malaysia. It was fascinating to watch the local fisherman out throwing nets to catch fish, especially the incredible square-shaped net used for catching fresh water anchovies.

Cruising down the river we could easily view all the small kampungs with beautiful mosques tucked away in the jungle. Local schoolchildren commuted to school by boat and for many in these small villages and kampungs this was the easiest way to move around this area.

The still and calm waters provided some beautiful reflections of the surrounding green vegetation and jungle. We also saw a number of small fish farms where tilapia fish were being farmed for food.

Fishing for freshwater anchovies.

We cruised down to Lake Raban and our boatman took us underneath the large road bridge which crossed the lake and into an area full of water lillies.

On our return trip back up some of the smaller waterways we saw a large blue heron fly out from the reeds.

Our boatman tried to attract some birdlife by making incredible bird calls using a small piece of plastic bag over his mouth., but with no luck unfortunately.

Soon the sun was setting and the sky changed into some vivid pink and red colours providing a fitting end to a wonderful boat trip.

    1. The boat was booked via our host at our accommodation so I unfortunately do not have the direct contact
