Anyhow, this small town is blessed and been awarded with tidal bore phenomenon on its Batang Lupar river which is known as "Benak" locally. This natural phenomenon is hardly found in other part of the country hence it became an important tourism asset to the town. A festive called "Pesta Benak" (Tidal bore festival) has became a major annual event which had attracted plenty of tourists visiting the town during the festive season.
Following the overwhelmed response from the public, recently a special platform to view the natural phenomenon had been built on the river bank of Batang Lupar which is called "Taman Panorama Benak". This is one of the very rare infrastructure development you can see in Sri Aman town in the recent decade.
Anyway, this artistic looking park is a nice add-on in beautifying the town and it has further strengthen Sri Aman's position as "The town of Benak" in Sarawak.
[Kubu Alice or Alice Fort is on top of the hill]
Taman Panorama Benak is located opposite Sri Aman Resident Office or beside/under Alice Fort near the town center. Its strategic location at a higher ground has make it an ideal platform to view the Benak phenomenon with more lengthy distance.
If you happen to visit the "peaceful town" of Sri Aman, don't forget to stop by at this Taman Panorama Benak and if you are at the correct timing, you may witness what the Benak is all about!
