Lake of the Pregnant Maiden, Pulau Dayang

(3.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Experience the cooling waters of Lake of the Pregnant Maiden, a large body of emerald green water. Legend has it that a celestial princess, Mambang Sari, enjoyed bathing here; she met a prince while swimming, fell in love with him, married him, and gave birth to his child. After just seven days, the child died, and the grieving princess left its body in the lake before returning to the stars. Surrounded by limestone cliffs and colored a deep green hue, you can understand the desire to understand the lake in spiritual terms. The waters make for serene swimming, or you can rent a kayak or pedal boat on site.
