Ulu Muda Lake
This lake built situated deep in the jungle, is only accessible by river. This wild, expanse of rainforest jungle saddling the two catchments areas creates a corridor for wild animals to cross into the Thailand jungles.



Covering more than 105,000 hectares, the area is one of the last remaining sanctuaries for animals such as elephants, tapirs, Sumatran Rhinoceros, sun bears, seladang, deer, gibbons, otters and numerous species of birds, reptiles, insects and monkeys. This reserve is unique in flora as it sits on the boundary of the northern and southern climatic zones.

You can do forest trekking with local guides and wildlife rangers. Bird watching along forest edges and lake. Walking on scenic jungle trails. Wildlife watching at salt-licks. Trekking for elephants in the wild. Fishing in the Muda lake or if more adventurous, game fishing in the upper reaches of the Muda river or rafting.



A good opportunity for birding along the riverbanks and jungle trails. The early part of the year is usually the flowering season for northern forests, and by mid-year many forest fruits abound. The latter would be an excellent opportunity to catch the many different fruit-eating birds.

The Ulu Muda Forest Reserve was gazetted in 1932 as a permanent forest reserve and it remains till now just as impermeable to most of us as it was then. Entry into the area requires much planning - as there are written permits and documentation to be sent to and approved by the Kedah State Forestry Department; Longboats and authorised guides to be arranged through the department. It all takes time. This is an adventure to be experienced only by intrepid adventurers.

This remote and isolated forested area lies on the north-eastern flank of Kedah, bordering Thailand, with the nearest major town being Alor Setar, 1.5 hours drive away. Overland via the north-south highway, taking the exit at Gurun. Follow the trunk road to Sik (TR K10), then north towards Gulau (TR K8) followed by Gubir (TR K13). For Pedu lake, continue north for another 30 km. From Gurun, follow signs to Desa Utara or Mutiara Pedu Resorts.
