KUALA LIPIS,THE STARTING POINT TO ENTER KENONG FOREST ECO PARK
At the confluence of the Lipis and Jelai River, Kuala Lipis is a small, picturesque town that has some marvellous colonial architecture dating from the period when Kuala Lipis was the capital of Pahang (1898-1955).During those days Kuala Lipis was an important trading place for timber and the centre of gold and tin mining. Today it is a sleepy and pleasant town with fine rows of shophouses down Jalan Besar (main street). Kuala Lipis is the major launching pad for visits to Kenong Rimba State Park.
