Gunung Lang Recreational Park

This limestone area was explored way back in 1880 by a Malay tin miner, whereby the mining activities were carried out in the caves here. This area was also turned into an iron ore mining area which developed a disrupted landscape area such as the swampy areas and lakes. The Ipoh Local Plan Study 2020 outlined the 111.93 hectares Gunung Lang Area as the Stage 2 Environmentally Sensitive Area and needs to be conserved. The only developments permitted for this area are ecotourism, research and education. The uniqueness of the limestone formation also attracts visitors as it is situated close to the Ipoh city centre.
