Hi everyone ~ So we meet again . This is the second place we want to go in Perak which is Gunung Lang,Ipoh . It's off Jalan Kuala Kangsar, a little further down from Perak Caves. The sign board is little bit confusing and the place is quite hidden in the corner of the town. One blink and you may get lost. We will guide you how to go there in the end of the blog. Gunung Lang is indeed an undiscovered attraction.

1.Gunung Lang man-made waterfall near the entrance. 

We reached Gunung Lang at 12p.m.We felt relaxed with the fresh air blowing against our sweating face. . Here, Gung Lang is a nice place for us to releasee stress. That's why we have to introduce the place as "MUST DO" in Perak . This is where you may reward yourself with a serene park teeming with nature. There are over 100 species plants at the site which hardly can be seen elsewhere in the county.

Tickets for the park included the boat service. Only For RM3!!!!!

Lots of fishes
There are lots of fishes in the lake such as Lampan, Tilapia, and Keli, and visitors were seen busy feeding them with fish flakes or breads the shoal fish and appeared to be enjoying the very much. Interestingly the lake was an abandoned mining pool! The authorities found out that the view and the surrounding could be potentially to developed as a recreational park, so they did.

Some pictures captured during the short boat trip

Short boat trip to the opposite park

In the meantime, we enjoyed the fascinating view of the surround mountains. Undoubtedly, we took this opportunities to chit chat with the boatmen about the park. He jokingly said "Ada harimau  dalam yang makan orang."(Tigers that may attack people inside). But of course don't worry, it's true there is a mini-zoo inside but the animals it's not carnivorous. It's all herbivorous.

There is also a gigantic tortoise in the pond , so adorable with his head out of the water!!!

Entrance to the park

The place is blooming with flowers A broad street, well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed and neat hedges, Kudos to the gardeners! This path is seemed to be rolled with a yellow carpet as if greeting you to visit. Don't you feel like a V.I.P?

Watch Tower
The first thing we saw was one obvious building standing tall at the lake side,At first time we thought this it was a light house or something. Initially we have no clue regarding the function of this tower and then we realized this tower was viewing the full landscape of the park.
and now let's begin our journey...
And so we when up and check it out.

This is the front view of the tower
This is the back view of the tower

The picture above shows the Gunung Lang Recreational Park breathtaking views with limestone hills and lakes.The Gunung Lang Park has three man-made lakes which were former mining pools.feel the stress of city living roll off your shoulders as you stroll along a 2km long broadwalk over a swampland where you can view interesting species of flora and fauna.Besides that,visitor can enjoy the scenic view from top of the tower. Absolutely beautiful!

Everyone: BEST!!!

So we went down the stairs and got back to the park again. This time we did some exploration and soon the  hot weather and exhaustion brought us into a stop, we needed some shades. After that,we found this special gazebo which gave us some protection.
A beautiful gazebos fully covered with flowers

Beside the gazebos, there was another thing to see.When we walking deeper to the park, we cane across  the mini zoo.

Yean Lynn is wondering what is inside the cage. It's a beautiful homing pigeon.

Besides that, there is another animal cage.But it looked smaller. What is that?

Oh, It's a rabbit cage!
A kit!! (baby rabbit)
I hope when you all come to visit next time, you can see this kit growing up healthily .There are other animal which are in a large cage such as ostrich and deer,

a 7 feet tall ostrich .
There is also one healthy deer there..

The surrounding limestone hills draped in lovely greenery provide a mesmeric view for a sore eye.

Oh Yeah!! We had to take one more boat trip back to the place where we come from..

Yes,definitely, the inherent seclusion and tranquillity of Gunung Lang provides a perfect retreat for friends and family to enjoy during their free time.
