Trip Info

If you enjoy the antics of monkeys and the mesmerizing dance of fireflies, this evening nature tour is a must! Visit a fishing village on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur to experience a natural phenomenon of thousands of fireflies! The Silvered Leaf Monkeys will leave you laughing with glee as they playfully run, jump and feed from your hands.

Late afternoon you will be transported to the nearby Kuala Selangor village. The lighthouse at Bukit Melawati is a haven for Silvered Leaf Monkeys. They are an adorable and friendly animal that feeds on young leaves, tree shoots and wild fruit. Their infants are orange in color and turn silver after three months. They live in clusters of six to ten. You will be delighted as they mimic small children running and playing. The monkeys here are use to having tourists around and will do most anything for your attention. They are a curious bunch that love to explore, especially onto people’s shoulders. Don’t be afraid as this species is very tame and not aggressive.

You will feast on a fresh seafood dinner at the local Riverside Cafe before catching a boat to view the fireflies. To ensure the best viewing, a row boat will be selected above a motor boat. The show soon begins as the fireflies resemble rows of sparkling lights on a Christmas tree as they dance on the mangrove trees! These trees are the best spot to see them as they feed on the nectar and are drawn to the trees for mating.

This is one of two places in the world to see such a magnificent show!

After a few hours of watching the mystifying creatures, we will return to Kuala Lumpur.
