FIREFLIES & BUKIT ROTAN TEMPLE TOUR
A trip to Kuala Selangor would be incomplete without seeing the fireflies. Having said that, aside from the fireflies boat ride, this Fireflies Tour includes:
Rubber & Palm Tree Plantation (drive past only)
Along the tour, you’ll drive past a rubber & palm tree plantation. It’s one of those road trip sceneries that prompts you to whip out your camera and go on an impromptu photo shoot. Enjoy the breathtaking view!
Just an hour’s drive from Malaysia’s capital city lies one of the country’s “other Kualas”, the charming laid-back town of Kuala Selangor. A “travel back in time” drive begins on the Coastal Road and be prepared for the charms Kuala Selangor has to offer.
Bukit Melawati (Lighthouse)
Established as a pleasing tourism hotspot that includes a lighthouse and historical fortress, the main reason to go uphill is to catch sight of the silver-leafed monkeys and long-tailed macaques. These monkeys are agile, gentle, playful and will delight you with their mischievous charm. The silver-leafed monkeys are unique in nature as they are only found in a few countries, Malaysia being one of them.
Also, view the Kuala Selangor Lighthouse, known as Altingsburg Lighthouse. This lighthouse played an integral part in navigating ships across the peninsula from 1907 until today. It is 27-meters high and its light can be seen 18 nautical miles away. Even though you can’t go inside, that doesn’t mean you can’t snap some lovely pictures of the lighthouse.
Bukit Rotan Hindu Temple
Known as Sri Shakti Temple too, this Hindu temple is the only temple in the world where manifestations of all 51 Shaktis are installed. Encircled by a huge decorative wall, entrance into the temple is via a magnificent Raja Gopuram. Soaring to a height of 74 feet, the 5-tiered Raja Gopuram is a proud proclamation of the architectural treasures within. Boasting complex architectural details, intricate sculptural designs and other unique features, Bukit Rotan’s Sri Shakti Temple certainly exemplifies the best of Indian architecture in Malaysia.
Fisherman Village (drive past only)
Kuala Selangor Fishing Village is located along Selangor River bear to Pasir Penambang.
