Once a tropical valley, it was flooded to create a hydroelectricity dam, thus creating within the lake numerous man-made islands of the once jutting hills and making it the largest man-made lake in South East Asia. The hilly regions of Tasik Kenyir contain areas of untouched tropical rainforest estimated to be millions of years old.
