Take a rendezvous with nature along the Perak River. Kuala Kangsar has her share of nature too, particularly along the Perak River. Once used to transport ore in the 19th century, the second-longest river in Malaysia now houses hydropower dams. Cruising down the river gives you a glimpse of the rustic side of Perak. Imagine the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze, buffaloes by the stream, monkeys swaying in the trees, and fishermen casting their nets. Of course, there are plenty of river adventure activities you can take a splash in such as camping, forest trekking, and kayaking.
