Photo | January 1, 2013

Dragon Lake (Danau Nagasakti) is an incredibly crystal clear peat lake with a backdrop of primary forest. Once home to the critically endangered Sumatran tiger, the area still supports a great deal of biodiversity. Part of the Kampar peat dome, this area is affected by changes in the water table and forest cover of the entire dome system. The people of Dosan village believe the lake is sacred and understand the importance of safeguarding the area they are the guardians of this forest.
