White Water Lake
As part of our commitment to the environment we have developed the nearby White Water Lake nature sanctuary, which has natural freshwater springs, wetlands and a wide variety of rare local trees including agarwood, which is used to make incense, medicines and perfumes.
You can visit White Water Lake for nature walks, bird watching, swimming or boating and to learn about Asian integrated farming techniques. You can also take part in rural activities - feed the cows and fish, harvest the rice, pick fruit such as papayas, mangosteen and coconuts or forage for herbs.
Our local area, with its rich soil, humidity and warm climate and abundance of water, has a wonderful diversity of flora and fauna. It was once part of the spice trade with wild cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and peppers growing in the hills and mountains, along with many beautiful timber trees. By keeping wetland areas, wild pockets of bush, replanting spice trees and local trees, preserving old fashioned varieties of vegetables and fruit trees, and encouraging the self-seeding of local trees and plants, we are helping to preserve heritage and habitat.
