Lenggong is a town, a mukim and a parliamentary constituency in Hulu Perak District, Perak, Malaysia. Lenggong is famous for its archaeological sites.IntroductionThe Lenggong valley in Hulu Perak is one of Peninsular Malaysia's most important areas for archaeology, as excavations have revealed many traces of Malaysia's prehistory. It is the site of the oldest known place of human activity in the Peninsula. Today it is still a rural area, with small kampongs surrounded by green vegetation and limestone hills. Lenggong can be likened to an open-air museum, and is home to legends, skeletons, cave drawings and precious finds such as jewellery, pottery, weapons and stone tools. Many of the caves in the Lenggong area have revealed evidence of ancient humans having lived and hunted in this area.The Lenggong Valley was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site on 30 June 2012.AccessLenggong is accessible by trunk roads connecting it with neighbouring towns and cities. The town of Lenggong is situated some 100 kilometres north of Ipoh on the Kuala Kangsar to Grik road (highway 76). The road to Lenggong is surrounded mostly by oil palm estates and jungles. As cows and buffalo are part of the agriculture, they are often seen along the road. The jungles (about million years old) are now in danger of heavy illegal logging.When using our Malaysia road trip website, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
