Timah Tasoh Lake
Ben van Wijnen

"The place is mesmerizing naturally. The concept of the resort is very well adaptive with the surrounding, but this place is really desperately in need of some image uplifting and facilities upgrade. The staff been very helpful and friendly. Another thing i noticed lots of cats wondering around the resorts. Kudos to the staff that feeding them and let them stay around. I would stay again in this place and i hope some upkeep has been done by that time."

The artificial lake was built in 1992. The kampong Tasoh had to disappear for that. The water of both rivers rose and rose. The village submerged and disappeared with mosques, houses, schools and cemeteries submerged. The memory of the drowned kampong is increasingly disappearing among the local population. The result of the new lake was that there was improved irrigation for the rice fields. The project cost RM67 million at that time.
The lake supplies also water to the people of Perlis as well as prevents any occurrence of flood in the state of Perlis. The lake can hold about 35.3 million litres of water at any one time. The scenic Timah-Tasoh Lake is also a sanctuary for migratory birds especially from the cold countries as this freshwater lake with its natural surroundings provides much needed food and shelter for these birds. Located within the Perlis State Park, this lake has also been identified as a suitable site for fish breeding and other aquaculture projects.

Timah Tasoh Lake is a man-made reservoir in Perlis, Malaysia. It got its name from two rivers, Sungai Timah and Sungai Tasoh, which provide the main catchment to it. Construction began in 1987. Completed in 1992 at a cost of RM67 million.
The lake is 1300 hectares in area, and can hold 35.3 million litres of water. It was created when a dam was built on Sungai Korok, about 2.5km below the confluence of Sungai Timah and Sungai Tasoh.
A bird sanctuary is set up at Timah Tasoh to protect the habitat of migratory birds that flock here during winter in the northern hemisphere.


Tasoh Lake Resort & Retreat is a nice place to relax for some peace and quiet. Excitement comes from outdoor activities. Night life is slightly different minus the loud and deafening music you find at clubs. You probably get entertained by the sounds of insects and night creatures. They have cabanas with barbecue pits dotting the lakeside area.
We saw some kayaking facilities as well. There are halls and big wide spaces for kids (and adults) to run about. Situated among hills, the air is fresh and still unpolluted.

This lake is an ideal place to rest and relax, to enjoy yourself. You have a spectacular view of Timah Tasoh Lake and the unique twin peaks of Bukit Chabang. Actually, this footage was accidentally snapped. At that time, we didn't know there's a twin peaks at this area.
