I visited Gunung Lang Recreational Park on hot Malaysian Couchsurfing host. The park is good to walk an hour or two. A couple of hours is more than enough as there is not really that much to keep you occupied for longer. The park does get rather hot so bring some water and sunscreen.

Sadly, I was bought up by the fact that this location was more than meets the eye. Apart from the rather breathtaking view upon arriving the main entrance of the boat dock, taking the boat over to the other side to the park was a total disappointment. There were some deers and ostriches in a locked up farm under the... More

Nothing too interesting if you were well-travelled. This is more for domestic travellers that need to look at something different for a change without it being too expensive.

The place is ideal for relaxing. We took the boat and had picnic here. However they should really maintain this place or else nobody even bother to visit again. This place has potential to be popular tourist spot because of the limestone rock formation and beautiful lake. They should think of additional attractions here.

The map for this park on TA suggests it is just along from the station when in fact it is about 5 km north of Ipoh. With help from the locals we got a 35 bus which dropped us off just down the road from MacDonald's. To get to the park take the road directly across from it and walk... More

The best part about this place is the boat ride. It's a 3 minute boat ride to get to the island itself, and the trip is lovely. The lake is beautiful and the surrounding scenery is very pleasant too. There isn't much to see at the island itself, it's not maintained very well and there aren't a lot of animals... More

This was my first visit to the mountain. Unfortunately i did not have the enough time to explore the Wonderful nature there. It has an amazing view of the lake and trees around, huge birds were flying so high above. My kids enjoyed the kids playing ground. It is a must when you are in Ipoh.

The first sight that greeted us from the carpark was the man-made waterfalls. It was a beautiful sight. This park is suitable for all ages and this park was serene and picturesque for taking photos. There was a couple who had come there to take a wedding photo shoot. For RM 1, we bought fish feed and fed the fishes... More

Suitable for people of all ages however less so senior citizens (ramps next to stairs but could imagine getting a wheelchair onto the boat being quite a struggle) as a fair amount of walking is involved after the boat ride, very serene and picturesque however the only animals we saw locked up fordisplay were austridges, chickens and pigeons...
