Lasir - Located 16 km (30 - 45 minutes boat ride) to the south of Pengkalan Gawi, is one of the most popular picnic spots in Tasik Kenyir. With a majestic fall of some 500 feet, Lasir drops gracefully onto a multi tiered level of boulders and rocks forming cascading showers of foaming white sprays of water. This waterfalls, as with all waterfalls within Kenyir, is well shaded by the leafy green canopy of the surrounding tropical rainforest.
