Dayang Bunting Lake : Although not proven scientifically, this remains as a strong belief within the locals. To add to the mystery that surrounds the island and the lake, if you take a look at the hills that forms the backdrop of the lake, from an angle it looks like as if a woman is lying on her back and the belly bulging out like that of a pregnant woman.

An amazing thing about the lake is, although it lies very close to the sea and separated by only a thing strip of rocks, it is a fresh water lake.

Once you reach the island, there is a narrow jetty and then a concrete narrow pathway that leads up to the hills through the forest. After about 10 minutes of climb along steps on the hill, there are some 100 steps that leads down to the beautiful lake on the other side of the hill. The lake has deep blue waters.

As you walk through the pathway, be careful about the monkeys. They do not usually reach any harm or attack you. But if you carry food or packets, monkeys are likely to pounce and snatch them away. So do not carry any food or drinks with you, neither try to feed the monkeys. They may still look at you curiously, but won’t create any problems.

The lake and the surrounding area is part of the Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park. This is one of the three geoparks of Langkawi with great limestone formations, marbles and unique geological features. The park has several caves. In fact the lake itself has resulted from a large underwater cave, the surface of which collapsed and later got filled with water.

Dayang Bunting Lake : There are actually several attractions and activities here. A large map is put up on a board marking all the attractions available at Bunting Island. Here are the main ones:

1) Dayang Bunting Lake : The lake is great for swimming. There are designated areas (pontoons) for swimming though. However watch out the depth. Average depth is about 10 meters and there is no shallow area. It’s not meant for novices. There are no changing rooms. So if you plan to swim, come wearing a swimming suit inside and carry towels.

If you are not confident, take a life jacket from the stall next to the lake and float around. The stall also sells other souvenir and gift items. The water at the lake is unaffected by seawater and therefor good for swimming. However it may not be very clear.

2) Dayang Bunting Lake : Take a solar operated paddle boat or a kayak available on rent and boat around the scenic lake. Mangrove swamps surround the perimeter of the island and the lake. We love the solar operated paddle boats as you hardly tire as you boat around. The view of the hills surrounding the lake is awesome.

3) Dayang Bunting Lake : Close to the stall, a separate water area has large number of catfish. So just dip your legs, soak in the scenic views and enjoy a natural fish spa on your legs for few minutes. It’s a great feeling!

Dayang Bunting Lake : Percutian ke Pulau Lang­kawi dikatakan tidak leng­kap jika tidak menikmati panorama Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park yang indah dan mendamaikan.

Lantaran itu, penulis tidak melepaskan peluang ke destinasi berkenaan semasa berkunjung ke pulau legenda berkenaan baru-baru ini.
Ternyata, perjalanan menaiki bot laju hampir 30 minit menempuh ombak begitu berbaloi apabila kita disajikan pemandangan semula jadi yang begitu memukau dan cantik.

Pulau Dayang Bunting ini bebas daripada sebarang pembangunan kerana sudah diwartakan sebagai hutan simpan dan diletakkan bawah pengurusan Pejabat Hutan Langkawi.

Tambahan, ia juga mendapat pengiktirafan UNESCO dan dikategorikan sebagai salah satu geopark di Langkawi.

Semasa dalam perjalanan, kita dapat melihat bentuk muka bumi pulau seakan-akan seperti wanita yang sedang hamil sedang berbaring dan dari situlah pulau ini mendapat nama.

Terdapat mitos mengatakan wanita yang sukar hamil, jika meminum air tasik di sini akan dikurniakan anak.

Pulau ini mempunyai dua mitos lain yang menjadi cerita rakyat berkaitan asal kejadiannya, iaitu pergaduhan antara Mat Raya dan Mat Chincang serta cerita jin bernama Mambang Sari yang mati ketika melahirkan anak.

Tarikan utama di pulau kedua terbesar selepas pulau Langkawi ini semestinya tasiknya yang seluas hampir tiga padang bola sepak. Biarpun hampir dengan laut, air di tasik ini tidak masin dan menjadi tumpuan pelancong melakukan aktiviti air.

Tetapi, pengunjung diberi peringatan agar menggunakan jaket keselamatan apabila berada dalam air kerana tasik ini mempunyai kedalaman 10 meter dan ada kejadian lemas di sini akibat tidak mengikut arahan yang ditetapkan.

Jaket boleh disewa di sini dengan kadar RM5 atau boleh meminjamnya daripada bot laju yang membawa kita.

Selain berenang, pengunjung boleh melakukan aktiviti lain seperti berkayak, bot kayuh dan menikmati spa ikan semula jadi. Bagi yang berminat dengan aktiviti luar, mereka boleh melakukan aktiviti lasak dengan aktiviti tali, merentas hutan dan berkhemah tetapi perlu mendapat kebenaran daripada pihak berkuasa terlebih dahulu.

Di samping tasik air tawar, ini, Pulau Dayang Bunting turut mempunyai beberapa tarikan lain seperti Gua Langsir, pokok-pokok berusia ratusan tahun, formasi batu-batuan yang terbentuk jutaan tahun dahulu dan hidupan liar seperti burung dan pelbagai spesies monyet.
Pengunjung diingatkan berhati-hati dengan monyet di sini yang kelihatan agak jinak, tetapi bertindak agresif apabila melihat bungkusan makanan.

Bagi yang tidak mahu melepaskan peluang menikmati keindahan alam ini, boleh mengambil pakej yang disediakan, sama ada di jeti pelancongan Pekan Rabu, Kuah ataupun jeti di Pantai Tengah dengan harga sekitar RM35 hingga RM45 seorang.

Pengunjung turut dibawa mandi-manda di Pantai Beras Basah dan memberi burung helang makan di Pulau Singa Besar dalam pakej yang ­ditawarkan tersebut.

Dayang Bunting Lake

Pulau yang terletak kira-kira 17.6 kilometer (km) dari pekan Kuah, di sini, menerima antara 700 hingga 800 pengunjung pada setiap hujung minggu, manakala jumlah kunjungan boleh meningkat sehingga 4,000 orang pada musim cuti.

LANGKAWI: Diselubungi pelbagai cerita mistik dan misteri tidak pernah menghalang pelancong sama ada dari dalam atau luar negara untuk terus mengunjungi Pulau Dayang Bunting.

Buktinya, pulau yang terletak kira-kira 17.6 kilometer (km) dari pekan Kuah, di sini, menerima antara 700 hingga 800 pengunjung pada setiap hujung minggu, manakala jumlah kunjungan boleh meningkat sehingga 4,000 orang pada musim cuti.

Apa yang pasti, penawar unik yang didakwa dimiliki Pulau Dayang Bunting menjadi antara tumpuan utama pengunjung terutama golongan wanita untuk menamatkan kemarau penantian selepas sekian lama hasrat menimang cahaya mata terbantut.

Walaupun ramai melihatnya sebagai mitos, ramai yang percaya kisah di sebalik Tasik Dayang Bunting ada kebenarannya.

Malah kewujudan tiga bukit yang bersambung seolah-olah memperlihatkan seorang wanita mengandung sedang berbaring, menguatkan lagi kisah terbabit yang turut dikaitkan dengan kewujudan puteri kayangan bernama Mambang Sari yang mengahwini pemuda tempatan.

Pelancong dari Melaka, Nurhidayu Azizan, 30, ketika ditemui mengakui akan ‘kehebatan’ tasik ini yang mampu membantu wanita yang ingin hamil apabila rakannya sendiri pernah mengalami pengalaman sebegitu.

“Ada sekali rakan saya yang sukar hamil selepas beberapa tahun berkahwin mandi di sini sebagai ikhtiar untuk mendapatkan anak dan Alhamdulillah dengan izin Yang Maha Kuasa dia dapat hamil,” katanya.

Selain penduduk tempatan, kisah pulau yang mampu menyebabkan wanita bunting ini, turut popular sehingga ke luar negara.

Eksekutif Operasi Lembaga Pembangunan Langkawi (LADA) Eco-Tourism Sdn Bhd, Mohd Nafizal Abu Bakar, berkata, sekitar November lalu, ada pasangan dari Dubai berkunjung ke tasik ini sambil membawa beberapa bungkus makanan untuk disedekahkan kepada pengunjung di pulau ini.

Katanya, ketika ditanya pasangan itu berkata, ia sebagai tanda syukur berikutan mereka akhirnya berjaya memperoleh seorang cahaya mata selepas mandi di tasik ini beberapa tahun lalu.

“Pasangan dari Dubai itu datang ke sini sambil membawa lebih 50 bungkusan makanan untuk disedekahkan kepada pengunjung di sini bersama seorang bayi berusia kira-kira sembilan bulan.

“Ketika ditanya lebih lanjut, katanya mereka sudah berkahwin lebih 25 tahun dan pelbagai kaedah sudah diusahakan untuk mendapatkan zuriat, namun gagal sehinggalah mereka dicadangkan seorang rakan supaya berkunjung ke tasik ini dan mandi serta minum airnya.

“Tanpa disangka akhirnya pasangan itu berjaya mendapatkan zuriat dan saya difahamkan, mereka turut bercadang untuk kembali ke tasik ini buat kali ketiga untuk mencuba nasib memperoleh anak kedua,” katanya.

Selain itu, Mohd Nafizal berkata baru-baru ini juga beliau turut didatangi sekumpulan 18 pengunjung dari Indonesia berusia sekitar 40’an semata-mata untuk mengambil air dari tasik ini dengan harapan supaya boleh hamil.

Difahamkan, tarikan Pulau Dayang Bunting bukan sekadar pada mitosnya sahaja, malah keindahan panoramanya juga tidak kurang hebatnya.

Terdapat tiga lokasi jeti bagi pelancong untuk ke Pulau Dayang Bunting, di mana perjalanan menaiki feri mengambil masa kira-kira 20 minit iaitu di Teluk Baru, Jeti Pelancongan Pekan Rabu dan Pantai Marble di Kuah.

Apa yang menariknya, sepanjang perjalanan menaiki bot dengan bayaran RM50 seorang itu, pengunjung dihidangkan dengan pemandangan alam semulajadi termasuk Gua Langsuir yang terletak di tengah perjalanan ke Tasik Dayang Bunting, yang dikatakan terbentuk akibat kesan hakisan ombak laut lebih jutaan tahun lampau sehingga membentuk stalagtik tergantung pelbagai bentuk yang dinamakan langsuir.

Bagi Tasik Dayang Bunting sendiri, ia adalah tasik air tawar semulajadi terbesar di pulau ini yang merupakan lembangan cetek terhasil dari proses pelarutan batu kapur berterusan sehingga terbentuknya dolina akibat runtuhan gua bawah tanah ratusan ribu tahun lalu.

Difahamkan, dolina ini kemudiannya diisi air hujan lalu membentuk tasik dengan kedalaman dipercayai tidak sekata, namun secara puratanya ia adalah sekitar 14 meter (m).

Sementara itu, Pengarah Persatuan Jemaah Pondok-Pondok Kedah, Sobri Osman, berkata dakwaan kononnya air dari Tasik Dayang Bunting mampu membantu wanita yang ingin hamil hanya boleh dijadikan sebagai ikhtiar seperti menjalani perubatan tradisional bagi tujuan itu.

Bagaimanapun beliau berkata, jika mereka menganggap air tasik itu yang mampu menunaikan permintaan atau yang berjaya menghasilkan sesuatu, ia sama sekali bertentangan dengan akidah, sekali gus mendatangkan syirik.

“Umat Islam tidak boleh berpegang atau bergantung pada kepercayaan kononnya air dari tasik itu mampu mendatangkan hasil, ia boleh menjadikan seseorang itu syirik.

“Sebaliknya anggap ia hanya sebagai satu ikhtiar asalkan ia tidak bercanggah dengan amalan diajar Islam, dan hanya Allah mampu memakbulkannya, ” katanya.
