One of the anthropogenic interference is the modification of natural habitat into the man-made environment, such as agriculture, urbanization mining, lumbering as well as industrialization. The kenyir lake as an artificial lake, attract tourist from all over the world because of its natural beauty sustainable development an eco-tourism attraction. This study will focus on how the natural landscape will be conserved and what is the composition of the land cover surrounding the Lake kenyir. The current issues that course for concern are the changes observed and detected from the land use, land cover (LULC) through the use of soil water assessment tool (SWAT) ArcSWAT 2012. The study area was finally characterized by a delineated watershed, sub-basin parameters for calculation of hydrologic response units (HRUs). this includes the nature and orientation of the slope; digital elevation model (DEM), local soil classification and the land cover found around the environment. The 3D simulation was applied to predict the flow of water from the subbasins and from the lake that drained into a larger body of water toward the river mouth of Kuala Terengganu to empty into the South China Sea.
