Pengkalan Hulu

Pengkalan Hulu began as the administrative centre of Reman State (part of Patani State) after the King of Reman invaded Klian Intan and began mining for tin. After a long period of tin mining, a series of disagreements with the Perak government arose. The Reman Government and the British signed several agreements. In 1902, the Siamese Government dissolved the monarchical system’s power in Reman.

Tasek Takong

Tasek Takong

Tasek Takong was named after Raja Reman, who governed Pattani, Thailand, to his colonies in Pengkalan Hulu (previously known as Kroh), Lenggong, and Kedah over 100 years ago and terminated when the district was given over to the Perak government on 16 July 1909. Previously, the lake was a flat land region, but Raja Reman rallied the locals to build a reservoir to offer amenities for hundreds of his elephants to graze and bathe.

Surprisingly, it has been turned into a tourist attraction as well as a place of education for current and future generations.
