For a place to rest and relax, Tasek Bera is a good choice. Tasek Bera is a fresh water lake found in the state of Pahang. Unlike Taman Negara, Tasek Bera receives much less visitors and the area still retains its peace and quiet serenity. For anglers, this is also a good place to land big catches. However, in terms of variety of activities, this place has less to offer than Taman Negara. This is also the home to one of the smallest group of indigenous people in Malaysia, the Semelai.

As most of the guides there do not speak English, language can be a big problem thus making Jungle Trekking and probably Night Walk less worthwhile. The best activity is still fishing and in small groups, the guide is able to lead you to more remote part of the lake where there are better catches. For those who have some cash to spare, a trip to Lembayung Waterfall is worth it. However, do not expect a large magnificent waterfall, rather, this is a small but clean waterfall with a nice large pool to have a dip. There are also canoes to rent out and you can venture into the vast lake. However, it is a maze out there and you may be lost in the tall grasses.

Basically, this lake is a great place to go to if you just want to spend the weekend at some place quiet and peaceful. Engage in some leisurely activity like fishing or just canoe about on the great lake and catch the sunset in the evening. Time seems to be at a standstill at Tasek Bera, a good breather away from the hectic city pace.
