Welcome to Tasik Chini
Tasik Chini (Lake Chini) is a series of 12 lakes linked by vegetation-clogged channels. It's one of Pahang’s natural flood retention basins, but environmentalists long ago criticised the increasing threat to the area as a result of decades of uncontrolled mining and logging. Dam construction over 20 years ago seriously impacted the lotus flowers that once filled the lake waters in summer and though this situation was alleviated, floodwaters in 2014 killed off a lot of the flowers. A lotus flower replanting program is under way, but the results are patchy and it could take many more years for the flower population to fully recover.
