Translated title of the contribution: Geology and landscape of Bukit Batu Putih, Kenong Rimba Park, Pahang

Abstract

Kenong Forest Park is part of the Sungai Yong Forest Reserve in Kuala Lipis area of Pahang. Bukit Batu Putih is located at the northern side of the park and consists of Bukit Hangus, Bukit Siput and several other small limestone hills. The geology of this forest park consists of Kayu Ara Volcanic, Kenong Limestone and Semantan Formation. Prolonged weathering processes have carved these rocks into beautiful and interesting karst landscapes such as mogotes, sinkholes, caves and beautiful cave formations (speleotherms) and subterranean rivers. Near the foothill of Bukit Siput, there is a small river consisting of gravels which looks like snails and known as 'batu siput (snail rocks)' by local community. The formation of this 'batu siput' can be explained by geological processes, where layers of calcium carbonate accumulated at the surface of dead snails. Natural environments such as the undisturbed forests and pristine physical conditions (of river, rock and soil) have attracted many tourists, especially those from foreign countries who love to venture into the tranquility of tropical rain forests.
