Today’s Photograph: Sungai Pahang

sungai-pahang-temerloh-11A view of Sungai Pahang at the river mouth of Sungai Semantan (not seen) at Temerloh.  Temerloh is one of the district in the State of Pahang, Malaysia.  Sungai Pahang is the longest river in Penisular of Malaysia.

Pahang River (Sungai Pahang) is a river in the state of Pahang, Malaysia on the Malay Peninsula. With 459 km in length, it is the longest river on the Malay Peninsula. The river begins at the confluence of Sungai Jelai and Sungai Tembeling on the Titiwangsa Mountains. It next flows down to form the Sungai Jelai, river in the Lipis area, then hits the Jerantut area and joins Sungai Tembeling River, forming Sungai Pahang at Kuala Tembeling. At that location, it is called Ulu Sungai Pahang. Sungai Pahang continues down past the village of Pulau Tawar and on to the Temerloh and Maran regions, and finally empties into the sea in the Pekan region.

These photographs were taken in June 2006, during one of the trip back to my hometown, Temerloh.




Spent most of the life in engineering and project management. Now having the opportunity to see the world beyond my usual nest. Travel extensively to Third World Countries. Aaahh... now everything is possible

  1. Dear Mamadou,

    I am a student of University College Sedaya International (UCSI), Cheras, KL. I am currently doing an assignment on ‘The Environment of Malaysia’ and there is a part about rivers. I came across your photo of Sungai Pahang and wish to ask for your permission to use that photo in my assignment.

    If I am given permission to use your photos in my assignment, I promise to give copyright credits.

    Thank you.
