Selama

Kerian

Kampung Selama or formerly called Kampung Selamat was opened by Encik Abdul Karim bin Raja Aman Shah on the 22nd. January 1870 AD. It is located between Jalan Sir Chulan and Kampung Gudang, then the village was renamed Kampung Selama (Selama District Council, N.D.). Before the arrival of Mr Abdul Karim in this district, there was already a village near the river about 10 km from Pekan Selama known as Kampung Sungai Bayor.

Lata Tebing Tinggi

Lata Tebing Tinggi / Lata Mengkuang

Lata Tebing Tinggi (Lata Mengkuang), is one of the seven waterfalls in Perak that is opened to the public. Tucked away 300 metres from the main road, this waterfall is easily accessible without the need for a 4-wheel drive vehicle. This waterfall is one of the mildest waterfalls in this state, which makes it suitable even for children. The icing on the cake is the fact that the entrance to this waterfall is free.

Lata Tebing Tinggi, 34140 Rantau Panjang, Perak


Sungai Atas Sungai (River Atop A River)

The name of this place is pretty self-explanatory, but how is that even possible? It is a water canal that flows from Sungai Ijok for 3.5 kilometres to Sungai Atas Sungai before passing Sungai Redang Panjang, which flows underneath it.

The construction of Sungai Atas Sungai was completed in 1938 by the Department of Drainage and Watering, previously known as the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) for the irrigation of paddy fields, and was connected with the collection of tin ore and the subsequent draining of Sungai Ijok water to Telaga Gergasi.

Telaga Gergasi

Telaga Gergasi

Telaga Gergasi is located in the town of Kampung Bagan Baru, Selama. It is a remnant of British technology used to regulate the movement of water from Sungai Ijok to Bukit Merah Lake. The height of this giant well structure is approximately 100 feet or 30 meters high with a depth of 20 feet or 6 meters. The British technology was originally built to move tin ore via rivers, but the modern construction features also indirectly prevent soil erosion from occurring in the Bukit Merah Lake.
