PEDU LAKE

Pedu Lake or Ampangan Pedu as known locally, is located in the state of Kedah, Malaysia. It lies at latitude 6 degrees 15 minutes, longitude 100 degrees 46 minutes at the height of 59.0 meters above mean sea level. The lake has the characteristics of a sea with both low tide and high tide. At maximum water level, the lake is 97.5m deep (320 feet).This man-made lake, is 75 sq km in area, is surrounded by primary tropical rainforests. It is part of the catchment area for the Pedu Dam in which water is stored to irrigate the padi fields on the plains of Kedah.

Located 90km from the state capital Alor Setar and served by good roads, it is easily accessible.

The Pedu Lake, located in the midst of the dense rainforest of Gunung Fakir Terbang and surrounded by an undulating terrain, this magnificent lake offers a serenity that is unmatched, a landscape that is beautiful beyond words, and a refreshingly cool environment. With its peaceful and tranquil environment, Pedu Lake is an ideal location for unwinding even under the midday sun.

The lush jungle is home to a large population of wild animals, which includes elephants, deer, wild boar, leopards, birds, bats, flying foxes, and not forgetting the different types of insects. The rich wildlife in Pedu Lake's jungle has prompted the Kedah Government to designate part of Pedu Lake and its surrounding areas as a wildlife sanctuary. This has opened a new dimension in eco-tourism, which is uniquely special to the Pedu Lake region. Hides and canopy walks have also been created to enable tourists and nature lovers to have a taste of adventure in the wilds.

Visitors should also not limit their adventures to daytime alone. When night falls and silence descends, one can hear the crackling calls of jungle insects, the occasional hooting of night owls, and the strange cries of wild animals. It is a world where the nocturnal animals dominate. Yet the moon high above the lake and the shimmering surface of the lake provides such peaceful and romantic feelings.

Pedu Lake has so much more to offer to us. Nature lovers have the entire jungle at their disposal to discover the hidden secrets of the tropical forests. Vacationers have the beauty all to themselves. One can never tire of this place.

With the surrounding green tropical forests and hills casting shadows on the lake, the waters shimmer in rich hues of emerald blue.

YOU must love the wilderness to really enjoy Pedu.
