Tasik bera , pahang

The family was in Temerloh yesterday for lunch at gerai pak usop (gulai tempoyak ikan patin) when we decided to extend our journey to Tasik Bera , about 67km from Temerloh.The road was windy and scenic traversing malay village alongside Pahang river .I was driving and at the same time daydreaming about riding my harley bike navigating the sometime sharp s bend . Daydreaming while driving is dangerous but sometime it makes the long journey more fun and interesting.

Bera Lake (Tasik Bera in Malay) is a natural freshwater lake system, located in southwest Pahang, Malaysia in the saddle of the main and eastern mountain ranges of Peninsular Malaysia, extending 35 km long and 20 km wide, drainings into the Pahang River.
As the largest freshwater swamp in Peninsular Malaysia, Tasik Bera or Bera Lake remains both a unique and remote wetland wilderness. Surrounded by a patchwork of dry lowland dipterocarp forests, the lake environment includes islands of peat swamp forests. Rich in wildlife and vegetation, the ecosystem which supports a diversity of a nimal and plant life, and sustains the livelihood of the Semelai branch of the Orang Asli people inhabiting the wetlands.
It has been protected under the Ramsar Convention since November 1994, which allows traditional use of the area to continue. The core zone consists of 260 km² and the buffer zone of 275 km².
