The Hidden Lake

About 40 minutes walk uphill from the Sinipung Hill resting hut, there is a highland lake that is now known as Sinipung Lake. According to legend, this lake which is located at about 4,500 feet above mean sea level with an area of not more than 2 acres was formerly known as Binaka Lake (Takung Binaka). A strange creature is believed to have lived in this mysterious lake and is feared by the villagers of Ulu Padas. The Legends said that this lake disappeared for four generations. No one managed to find it until in 1997. After the incidence, the lake was renamed as Keluyung Lake (Takung Keluyung) and until today no one knows the meaning.

Now, this lake is considered a mystery lake and is renamed as Sinipung Lake (Takung Sinipung) by the local villagers. Fish were no longer found in the lake. The water is so clear, fresh and smellest. Visitors are adviced to use guided tours if they want to take a refreshing bath in the lake.
