Batu Caves, FRIM Rainforest and Firefly Private Tour

Meet and greet with our driver guide.

The tour begins with the rainforest hike in FRIM, the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia. Part of the Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve, located just a few minutes from the city center, the forestry institute offers a tranquil experience in nature where you can trek through some of the most spectacular secondary rainforest in the city whilst enjoying the thriving flora and fauna that live there and the serene waterfall and river that cuts through the ancient land.

After the trek, you will enjoy a 30-45 minute visit stop at Batu Caves, one of the most popular Hindu Shrines outside of India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. Spend your time climbing its 272-steps, walking through the main cave, where you can enjoy sculptures of deities and murals depicting scenes of the Hindu Scriptures, and watching the many monkeys living in and around the caves. After the tour in the city, you will begin your journey to Kuala Selangor.

Upon arrival, you will enjoy a visit stop to Kota Melawati, a Dutch fort built at the end of the 1700s formerly known as Fort Altingsburg. There you can feed silver leaf monkeys and admire the Melawati Hill Lighthouse while enjoying the breathtaking view of the Straits of Melaka. On the drive, enjoy enroute stops at a Malay Traditional House, rubber and palm plantations, a tropical fruit orchard and much more, depending on the weather and time of day.

Dinner will be served overlooking the Kuala Selangor river where you will be able to watch the sunset as you enjoy a mouthwatering spread of local dishes. Finally you will proceed to Kampung Kuantan for the firefly river boat cruise. Our skilled local oarsmen will row you upstream in the quiet darkness to witness the scintillating display put on by the thousands of fireflies found in the mangrove swamp. The calming cruise through the peacefullness of the natural world makes this experience a truly memorable and unforgettable one.
