Exploring the lakes is a great interest not only to sports, casual nature and adventure lovers but also to naturalists, botanists and zoologists.

It is the only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status site in Malaysia and known as “Malaysia’s Loch Ness Monster” due to the belief of a dragon named Naga Seri Gumum in the aborigine’s legend.
