Kuala Selangor Firefly en-route Batu Caves Temple & Malawati Hill Day Tour is an exciting excursion to one of the biggest firefly colonies in the world. Fireflies locally-known as ‘kelip kelip’, perhaps Kuala Selangor’s biggest attraction. Admire the beautiful display of nature in awed silence, with the swishing sound of the water gently lapping against the sides of the boat breaking the silence. The experience is surreal to say the least; it simply has to be seen to be believed. As an added value, Kuala Selangor Firefly Tour includes en-route stop at Batu Caves Temple and Malawati Hill.

Batu Caves is an iconic and popular tourist attraction located just 13km north of Kuala Lumpur, site of a Hindu temple and shrine. Batu Caves has three main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines. Its main attraction is the statue of Lord Murugan standing at 42.7 m (140 ft) high, the world's tallest statue of Murugan. The main temple was located inside the cave and to reach it, visitors must climb a steep flight of 272 steps.
Proceed to next destination with approximate 1 hour drive to reach Melawati Hill. Melawati Hill is a beautiful area with numerous attractions. The hill is also an important historical site that offers interesting insights into Selangor’s fascinating history. One of the main attractions of Bukit Melawati is the presence of silvered leaf monkeys and long-tailed macaques, which are provisioned by tourists. The silvered leaf monkeys at Bukit Malawati are habituated to humans and sometimes willingly touch and climb on visitors approaching for food. Attractions also include a tram ride, a royal mausoleum and a museum.
Continue your journey to Pasir Penambang Seafood Restaurant. Sit down for a delicious served dinner; enjoy your meal with wonderful sunset views over the Selangor River. Vegetarian and chicken options are available in addition to the seafood specialties.
By 19:45Hrs, proceed to firefly Park jetty to board the boat. The trees along the riverbanks which can only see the silhouettes of in the dark on both sides are filled with thousands upon thousands of twinkling fireflies like stars in the night. When they say that these fireflies make the trees look like Christmas trees, they aren’t kidding; why, at this moment it feels as if Christmas has come early!, Admire the beautiful display of nature in awed silence, with the swishing sound of the water gently lapping against the sides of the boat breaking the silence. The experience is surreal to say the least; it simply has to be seen to be believed.

Great tour saw some wonderful sites and our driver (Lee) was really great. He has so much knowledge about everything from the buildings to flora & fauna what grows on what trees etc and how it's harvested and life in Malaysia in general.
If you are coming to Kuala Lumpur and need a guide ask for Lee he's the best
Great experience, Nithia was a great guide and very helpful.
The monkey feeding was a delight and the fireflies is a must do.
Had a good time.
We would recomend it!
The driver Steven was very very nice and friendly. He showed us a lot. Thanke you so much!! The experience wirh the fireflies and also Batu Cave was really good!!
Great experience for the whole family.
Normally we are not the kind of people for an excursion. But this one was a good experience. We had a patience and good driver who drove use safely to all spots. We liked the batu caves with the monkeys and the fireflies. The food included with the excursion was excellent.
Nithia was an excellent tour guide, offering helpful insights into the places we were visiting and the country of Malaysia itself. The fireflies were absolutely wonderful- we would recommend adding on a ‘blue tears’ excursion if possible.
