Taman Tasik Raub, Pahang

When I was in Raub for the Sunday Bike Ride with Minister of Tourism in early July, it was an opportunity to be present at this recreational spot. It was where the Sunday Bike Ride @ Raub was flagged off and finished. There is also a town named Raub in Indiana, USA but this Raub I am talking about is in Pahang, Malaysia.

Raub is located about 45 miles (72.4 km) from Kuala Lumpur. I use THIS for the distance calculator. Raub grow from a gold mining area and was found in the 20th Century. How this town got it name HERE. Drivers traveling to Terengganu and Kelantan will pass this town after they take the exit after the Karak Toll Plaza.

The map below show the location of Raub Lake Garden.

Taman Tasik Raub is managed by JPS Raub and information about the lake is

The calm water of the lake create serenity and a good location to relax or destress yourself. The Lake Garden has been segregated into different themes as follow: 
  • Laman Pepakis & Laman air
  • Laman Kemboja
  • Laman Heleconia
  • Laman Desa & Laman Bunga
  • Laman Teduhan
  • Laman Ficus
  • Laman Canna

One of the activity one can do at the lake is jogging. However the concrete pavement is not suitable for the activity since it can lead to shin splint. It will be worse if one doe not wear suitable shoe for such activity. 
When I was there, I could see another activity taking place, fishing, and not sure whether this 'legal'

Looks like a great lake, but not sure whether I have the stamina to even do a one round jog :)

the lake looks big but I think jogging around it can be achieved easily even though one is not very fit. Maybe a lap around the lake is enough for your sweat out for the day.
