From Kuala Tahan jetty, visitors can reach Lubuk Tenor by going upstream in a 15-horse power boat for 15 minutes. Among the activities, apart from swimming, are feeding and playing with the kelah. The visitors can also view schools of kelah fry swimming in the crystal-clear waters. Fascination abounds when the sensitive kelah react with lightning speed as feed pellets are thrown on the water.
