A Visit To Gunung Lang Recreational Park, Ipoh

Hubby's friend and his family were in Ipoh for a few days to visit his brother. Hubby made appointment to meet up with his friend and family members at the Gunung Lang Recreational Park, Ipoh. I tagged along because I have not been over to the other side of the lake on my first visit.

Gunung Lang Recreational Park, Ipoh was opened to the public in the year 2000.
When it first opened there was a cascading waterfall coming down from the top of the limestone hill.
On my first visit a few years ago, we didn't take the boat over to the other side of the lake.
Operating hours.
The short boat ride to and fro: 
RM3.00 for adults & RM1.50 for senior citizens.
While waiting for the boat ride, I saw this funny looking palm tree. It is a double-headed or double trunk palm tree.
This boat will take us over to the other side of the lake.
Someone wanted to take a closer look or maybe take some snapshots but was called back by one of the staff.
Time to get on the boat.
This lake was an old mining pond.
The lake is surrounded by limestone hills.
Up ahead is the jetty.
It was a hot sunny day.
Nice reflection in the water.
There were more than 10 people in this boat ride.
Nearing the jetty, ready to disembark.
I was ready to explore and discover what is on this side.
I think this is the model of a "Rumah Perak" or "Perak House".
No occupant but we saw a few monkeys loitering around.
A "Flame of The Forest" tree.
Signs showing the things of interest.
Nice to walk under these shady trees that blocked out the sun.
This is one of 2 watch towers.
A young man ran up the watch tower and ran down again.
We saw 2 pairs of feathered critters and some animals in cages that I will be sharing in my next posts. The place is a lovely place but needs better care or maintenance. Once we were back on the other side, we went to Bercham for lunch.


The Lord is my fort where I can enter and be safe;
no one can follow me in and slay me.
He is a rugged mountain where I hide; he is my Savior,
a rock where none can reach me, and a tower of safety.
He is my shield.
He is like the strong horn of a mighty fighting bull.
(Psalm 18:2, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. That's a stunningly beautiful place. I wouldn't be venturing to any such places here though as every day, it is scorchingly hot...like in the Sahara!

    1. I agree it is hot these days but I wouldn't want to miss another chance to go over the lake. With the many shady trees on the other side, they help blocked out the hot sun.

  18. I am so glad you went on this adventure. It must have been interesting to ride on the boat, to share experience with 9 other people, lucky to have shade trees and water to beat the heat.
