The first stop on island hopping tour. You must pay 6MYR entrance and 5 more for the compulsory life jacket if you want to swim. From the platform you can take another bridge walk to get away from the crowd.

To enter is additional rm6. Steep climb especially when coming up from the lake. Lake is nice and cool.

This was my favorite stop on my island hopping tour around Langkawi. There isn't much to do here other than relax. I enjoyed the green jungle and watching the wildlife. You can walk around the lake on the boardwalk they've built. There are also paddle boats available to rent. On the dock I stuck my feet in the water a bit and let the little fishies nibble on my feet.

I was really keen to go here and learn about the tale of the Pregnant maiden, the myths surrounding the island and to take a dip in the famous lake that prompts fertility. It wasn't a let down. I brought into the entire tale which goes like this:

The favourite bathing pool of a celestial princess named Mambang Sari was said to be Tasik Dayang Bunting (Lake of the Pregnant Maiden). A prince, Mat Teja, fell madly in love with her and tricked her into marrying him. Sadly, their child died from a mysterious illness at the age of seven days. Distraught, the grieving Mambang Sari left the child's body in the lake and returned to her heavenly abode. Today, some believe that barren women who bathe in this lake will be endowed with a child.

The island is wonderfully scarce on the side of the lake and we saw lots of wildlife including a large family of monkeys around the lake itself. It was fun to watch the babies push each other into the water while the adults tried to ransack peoples bags.
