The Sungai Selangor Dam offers beautiful scenery along the trunk road to Fraser's Hill from Kuala Kubu Bharu town. Many visitors choose to use this route just to glimpse the dam while others enjoy fishing off its bridges. The dam is surrounded by lush rainforests nestled among valleys. A wealth of wildlife can be found in this verdant landscape. The Sungai Selangor Dam is one of the largest and highest in Malaysia, flooding an area the size of 600 hectares, which comprise 3 percent of the water catchment area.

One of the most popular rivers for recreational whitewater rafting since the 90s and reputed to have rapids that meet Olympic standards for whitewater kayaking. Located within 1 hour from Kuala Lumpur, this location continues to provide outdoor enthusiasts an extreme wild whitewater ride until present day.

The implementation of the Selangor Dam construction in the late 90s until 2003 to provide fresh water to Kuala Lumpur required the Temiar tribes living in the jungles by the river to relocate themselves as well as the put a halt to the river sports. Visitors to this area dwindled and so did the ecology and economic conditions in the area.
However, since 2005, whitewater rafting and kayaking in the area saw a revival. Visitors are now flocking back every weekend to visit Kuala Kubu Baru (KKB) town enroute to Frasers Hill or to view the Selangor Dam.

KKB is an old tin mine town built with captivating colonial buildings and terrific greenery. KKB replaced another town that was washed away by floods from a broken dam in the late 19th century. The remnants of the old town(Ampang Pecah) is just a few minutes drive away.
