Experience jungle landscapes on virgin islands throughout this incredible archipelago, all while kayaking.
The island of Langkawi is located in the Andaman Sea on the west coast of Malaysia. The archipelago is made up of a hundred islands, of which only four are inhabited. We offer navigation to hidden places in this gem, which is Kedah.
Pulau Langkawi is a unique geological site that classified UNESCO as a “Geopark” and is one of the oldest submerged lands of South East Asia.
Grand rock formations date from over 550 million years, and its pristine beaches are nestled under the cliffs. Langkawi will offer you unforgettable landscapes.
Without a doubt, Langkawi is one of the most stunning places to visit in Malaysia. More than half of the area is covered by lush tropical forest, home to unique fauna and flora, including 400 different tree species. The possibilities for hiking in Langkawi are nearly unlimited, and there are even jungle walks at night!
Situated at the famous Kilim River in Eastern Langkawi Island, Kilim is an outstanding land-form with a dramatic landscape surrounding the hidden lagoon of Kilim Geoforest Park. Here the largest mangroves area in this region is located. Kayaking through the channel and waterways is an exciting experience to see the virgin mangrove jungles. One can also see a Cave full of bats, local fishermen area, pure mangroves, and abandon islander villages.
Kilim Geoforest Park Langkawi, spanning almost 100 square kilometres, is noteworthy for mangrove swamps, pristine beaches, and vertical karstic hills jutting towards the Andaman Sea. Set along the northeast tip of Langkawi Island, the park is accessible within a five-minute drive from Tanjung Rhu Beach.
The Kilim Geoforest Park is one of three Geoforests on Pulau Langkawi, which itself was designated a Geopark by UNESCO in 2007. The Kilim Geoforest Park is reportedly the most successful eco-tourism destination in Langkawi. It features a wide variety of natural features, including coastal karst, caves, pristine mangrove forests, flora and fauna, fossils, and the oldest carbonate rock in the region; formed 490-370 million years ago.
A good variety of wildlife is found in Kilim Geoforest Park Langkawi, ranging from otters and monitor lizards to macaques and tree crabs hiding among thick mangroves. During the migratory seasons (September to March), you can spot birdlife of varying species, including kingfishers, white-bellied fish eagles, and kite eagles.
Scattered across Kilim Geoforest Park Langkawi are limestone formations over 500 million years old, with unique names such as the Temple of Borobodur, the Elephant Stone, and the Hanging Gardens. Numerous caves are filled with fossils andic stalagmite and stalactites, namely Crocodile Cave, Cave of Legends, and Bat Cave.
The best way to explore this protected landscape is via a riverboat cruise along the Kilim River. Aside from a leisurely experience with an experienced nature guide, visitors are also chartered to the limestone caves and a floating fish farm where they can hand-feed stingrays and archer fishes.
If you prefer to explore this expansive mangrove park at your own pace, you should choose to kayak your way through this beautiful place. Be sure to wear sunscreen and comfortable clothing to get relatively sunny at Kilim Geoforest Park Langkawi.
