Lake Kenyir

This trip was consider as a revisit to the largest man made lake in Malaysia (some say even SEA), where I've been to this wonderful place on 4th semester.
Being the last trip before we draw apart from each other after the intimacy for almost the life in this ivory tower, everything was expected to be a perfection though it was also a budget trip.

After the almost an hour drive from Kuala Terengganu, we've arrive at the Pengkalan Gawi, a more tourist friendly jetty departing point to the lake traveling. From this jetty, we travel for about 15 to 20 minutes of boat ride, to the Lake Sanctuary Resort. Though the pricing was slight higher but it's one of the few budget resort which you may find on the island.

Kenyir has the most number of islands of world's man made lake.
Despite the numeroud picturesque scenary which protray by the lake itself, we went to two of the most visit site which is the Herb Garden and the Soak Waterfall.

In the herb garden you get to taste the renowned Kacip Fatimah and Tongkat Ali drinks which are not advisable for those you has bad bitter taste bud. The drink was so naturally brew right from the plants root which believed to be essential to health. Though I wasn't enjoy much by the drink but some raw-eaten herbs was definitely a worthwhile.

Soak Waterfall was not the best waterfall they have there, but to consider a very pretty one.The water is definitely close to ice water, try to dip a part of yourself into it before entering the pond!

Thanks to Jason for putting in effort in making us a very sweet and embarrassed video clip. Apart from the magnificent nature, the time spent with bunch of close friends is another memorable spot in the trip itself. Such maudlin way in checking out from the university's life.

Looking forward for another trip as such, pal!
