Batu Caves & Firefly Watching in Kuala Selangor

1. Batu Caves & Firefly Watching in Kuala Selangor

Enjoy an afternoon and evening tour to the dramatic 400-million-year-old Batu Caves and see hundreds of thousands of twinkling fireflies on a boat tour of the Selangor River. Continue to Batu Caves to roam in the prehistoric caves, after a climb of 272 steps. See some of the Hindu temples that have been established here since the early 1900s, such as the temples to Lord Murugan, Siva, and Ganesh. Next, you will go to Kuala Selangor, one of the most historic and conflicted areas during the early stages of the Malay Sultanate Selangor. It is also famous for its Seafood Restaurant, where you will enjoy dinner. But before dinner, stop at Bukit Malawati at the highest point in Kuala Selangor, and admire the fort that monitored ships along the Strait of Malacca and Selangor River. The area is home to some cheeky Silver Leaf Monkeys, which are more friendly and tame compared to the monkeys at Batu Caves. Dinner will be served at a local restaurant to allow where you can try local food. Choose from a aariety of favorite Malaysian food such as Bariani Rice, Roti Canai, Kaya Toast Bread, and Fried Noodle. Finally, drive to Kampung Belimbing Fireflies Park. Quietly float out to see the incredible twinkles of the largest fireflies colony in the world. Marvel at the ability of these amazing lightning bugs to synchronize their light patterns, before your return to Kuala Lumpur at approximately 21:30.

We had a fantastic day! The Batu Caves are amazing, a must see for anyone visiting KL. Anuar was a wonderful host, who provided us with a fantastic and memorable day. The silver leaf monkeys were adorable, I could have strayed with them all day. Make sure you bring an easy change of clothes, because the monkeys will jump onto your shoulders and you will get dirty. The fireflies were lovely and Anuar went above and beyond to try and avoid the large tourist crowds.

We had a nice and exciting tour with our guide Norman. He responded to our needs and was very accommodating. The Batu-Caves were very impressive. The dinner was authentic and flavorful. We were very impressed by the play of lights of the fireflies, as it is the only thing that can be seen from the boat. The silence on the river was a great contrast to the hustle and bustle in Kuala Lumpur. We were not disappointed.

Fantastic combination! You see many different things in the time of the excursion (about 7 hours). You must see batucaves when you are in KL, monkeys were really super cute, the food was delicious and the fireflies sports from one rowboat was a really nice experience! Our guide, Zach, was fantastic!

It was a beautiful Exprerience we got to see monkeys and feed them and the fireflies look just like lighting up a Christmas tree!

Really nice trip! Would recommend it to everyone who‘s the first time in KL
