What to Expect
Escape the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur’s city sprawl on a private full-day tour to the Batu Caves, Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, and fireflies’ village of Bukit Melawati.
Following a pick-up from your hotel in Kuala Lumpur, transfer by air-conditioned vehicle to the Batu Caves, located on a limestone hill approximately 15 kilometers north of the city center. Get ready to take a selfie at the golden statue of Murugan, the 2nd tallest Hindu deity in the world. Discover the caves and Hindu shrines of Batu Caves on a walk up the 400-million-year-old rock.
Next, go to the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, crossing the Genting Highlands to the Elephant Orphanage. Upon arrival, get a short briefing and video presentation about elephant conservation before getting up-close-and-personal with the friendly mammals. Help to bathe the elephants in the shallow river.
Proceed across country to the quiet township of Bukit Melawati in Kuala Selangor, known for its delectable seafood, and the dazzling fireflies of Kampung Kuantan. Take a boat ride through the mangroves to marvel at the mesmerizing creatures, and discover a treasure trove of attractions just one hour from Kuala Lumpur city center.
