The recreational forest facilities of Jeram Tengkek in Batu Kikir will be upgraded to become another state attraction.
Negeri Sembilan Urban Wellbeing, Housing, Local Government, and New Villages Committee chairman Teo Kok Seong said that the government of the State has allocated RM500,000 for this project.
“Upgrading works have started and are expected to complete by Oct 21. We believed this recreational forest has the potential to be a tourist destination for the eastern part of Negeri Sembilan. The place is not only unique for its waterfall, but it is also close to Bukit Baginda and Orang Asli villages.
“We will promote this place to attract local and interstate tourists,” he told reporters after a working visit to the recreational forest. Also present, was state Women, Family and Welfare Committee chairman Nicole Tan Lee Koon.
Teo said that the forest had received some 2,000 visitors within the first six months of this year and hoped it would draw more tourists.
The forest is part of the Serting Forest Reserve, located about 30 minutes’ drive from the town of Batu Kikir.
