Model Answer:

Ethnically diverse, Malaysia is not only popular as true Asia and the land of beaches, skyscrapers and waterfalls, but it also has some mystic lakes which captivate the attention of all travellers. Today, I would like to talk about one such lake which I really like.

The name of this lake is “Lake Bera”, or “Tasik Bera” in our language. Located in southwest Pahang, Tasik Bera is the largest natural freshwater lake in Peninsula Malaysia. It is situated in the saddle of the main and eastern mountain ranges of the Peninsula and is approximately 35km long and 20km wide.

Tasik Bera has remained a unique and remote wetland wilderness, which is surrounded by a patchwork of dry lowland forests. Having pretty clear water, this Bera Lake is a sanctuary for 328 species of flora, 200 bird species, 50 mammals, and more than 95 species of fishes.

Around the lake, there is a huge area of dry land which is covered by different kinds of trees and plants, making it essentially look like a forest that supports a diverse range of larger vertebrates including the Asian Tapir, Asian Elephant, Clouded Leopard and rare Tigers. However, visitors are unlikely to encounter these animals. Of course, there are no viewing hides in place for the visitor to remain concealed. Besides, there is some extended wetland around the lake, with its depth only as little as one meter, where endangered reptilian species such as the Malayan False Gharial (a freshwater, fish-eating crocodile) can be seen. 

By the way, the relatively isolated and tranquil surroundings of the open water are also perfect for boating or kayaking. Visitors can cruise river channels and inlets in search of vegetation and wildlife.

Well, I like this lake, mainly because being there is very calming and serene for restless minds. Besides, I could also do fishing, trekking in the jungle, and boating in the lake in order to find some rare wildlife, when I am in the mood for some adventure.
