Behind a 50m mysterious, dark tunnel in Ipoh is a hidden gem that is the perfect destination for adventurous souls
Mirror Lake or Tasik Cermin is tucked deep within a former quarry surrounded by limestone hills
In recent years, people have sought out this hidden gem and taken some pretty cool Instagram shots.
However, it's not recognised as an official tourist destination yet so avoid bringing children and be aware that you will be going at your own risk.
There's a viewing platform (possibly built for previous quarrying purposes) where you can stand at and take in the scenery
Located at Gunung Rapat, Tasik Cermin is a 20-minute drive from Ipoh town
How do I get there?
After turning left at Jun Tyre Auto Service, follow signage labelled 'Tokong Da Seng Ngan' located along the road until you reach the quarry entrance next to a white run-down bungalow.
According to Malaysia Traveller, you will need to walk through this area until you reach the tunnel.
Some things to take note of before visiting:
- You might need to pay around RM5 to an unofficial parking attendant.
- You can take photos but do not swim or fish at the lake.
- It's not a tourist spot and it's not developed so avoid bringing children.
