Temenggor Lake (Malay: Tasik Temenggor) is a lake in Hulu Perak District, Perak, Malaysia. It is the second largest lake in Peninsula Malaysia after Kenyir Lake in Terengganu. This man-made lake is located south of 1,533 m high Ulu Titi Basah peak,.[1] It was created after the construction of Temenggor Dam to generate electric power. The lake is located about 45 km from the Hulu Perak district capital, Gerik. There is a man-made island, Banding Island (Pulau Banding)[2] and Lake Temenggor Bridge on the East-West Highway which crosses the lake.
