Your perfect half day fishing trip at the Temenggor lake.

The Royal Belum state park is a very attractive fishing destination for beginners and die hard anglers to pit their skills. Temenggor lake is known for its very rich population of several aquatic species and the very limited human activities in the area of the state park can deliver great possibilities of huge catches! The largest fish for which the entire area is most famous for is the giant snakehead, locally known as “toman”. The largest specimen can weigh up to 20 kilograms, truly a “fishzilla”.

Treat yourself with a very private and exclusive fishing trip in Belum and explore the beauty of one of the World’s oldest rainforests growing on top of an amazing lake!

From RM350 inc. taxes
Duration: 4 hours
Maximum 6 persons

Get the opportunity to catch one of the 23 species of freshwater fish.

This includes: Toman, Sebarau, Tenggalan, Baung and even the famous Kelah, providing ample challenge to fishing. This makes Temenggor Lake a very attractive fishing destination for beginners as well as die hard anglers to pit their skills.


The Toman fish also known as Giant snake head fish, can weight around 10 / 15 kg maximum. National Geographic has already referred to snakeheads as “Fishzilla”.

This is the perfect tour for a small group of maximum 03 people. We don’t recommend this experience for groups larger than 12 people. If your group is larger, we’d recommend to book a houseboat instead or contact us. We will automatically assign one boat to each three (3) people in your booking. For safety reasons (and comfort of course), we won’t allow more than 3 people per boat. The cost of the boats (in the ratio of 1 boat each 3 people) is already in the total price. However, you can book extra boats if you want to allow more space, at an additional cost.

Extra boats are subject to availability – if there are not enough additional boats, we will try to notify you as soon as possible and refund you the cost of this option.

The boats are large stable fiber glass fishing boats powered by 40hp outboard engines. This was made for spacious and comfortable fishing platforms with plenty of space for tackle, bait and lunch.

Your fishing trip will start at 07:30 am until 11:30 am (Morning session) or at 15:30 pm until 19:30 pm (Afternoon session).

Fishing expedition leaves in the morning from Pulau Banding public jetty.

We recommend:

  • Fishing equipment is not included in the costs nor provided on board; you may bring your own fishing rod (unless you would like to rent it)
  • For more info about the fishing equipment click here.
  • You will need to follow state park rules, of course – among those regulating fishing activities, the most important one is a general “catch and release” policy practiced in the park area.
