A lot of wildlife lovers like to roll their eyes at bird watching. In addition to the usual tropical hornbills and kingfishers, Langkawi is home to mighty birds of prey. Among these are the eagles, a sight to behold and a symbol for Langkawi.
The brahminy kite, or brown eagle, is one of the most common. So numerous are these birds that you can count on seeing one if you take the time to journey into the wet parts of Langkawi or bother taking time in the mountains. Indeed, you’ll find statues of this bird all over the island — the same might be said for the more common white-bellied eagle.
A treat for the lucky photographer, snatch fish from the busy, placid mangroves. They swoop down from the cloudy skies into green inland waters. More importantly, these birds are so numerous that you can see them hunting in these busy waters in groups, particularly in the Kilim mangrove area.
Macaque Monkey Feeding
Despite their name, crab-eating macaques do not consume crabs! Instead, they prey on vertebrates and plants. These monkeys are ecologically diverse and can be spotted in coastal lowland forests and swamp forests. A clear dominance hierarchy is seen among females, with male members leaving the group at the time of puberty.
Situated off the Kilim River, Crocodile Cave is unique because it is a natural tunnel developed in the limestone by an underground stream that once flowed in this area during the low sea level. Now the tunnel turns into a beautiful cave. The river flows right through the arched cave, and at low tide, a small boat can navigate from one side to the other.
Inside the cave, an ascending chamber flanked by limestone walls with minimal stalactites and stalagmites. Small colonies of bats roost on the ceiling of this cave. One can also observe ancient shells sticking on the wall and roof of this cave.
When looked at at certain angles, this cave resembles a look of a crocodile. Hence the name of the cave came about. There are no crocodiles to be sighted in this cave.
Kelawar (Bats) Cave is located in the heart of Kilim mangrove swamps within the Kisap Forest Reserve. The cave is about 60 m long and was named because it supports hundreds of bats. It consists of two caves.
The western cave has about 270 m sq with a low roof (1-3m) trending northeast. The second cave is more extensive, having a floor area of about 750m sq, with a roof reaching 10m high and trending north-northwest.
Exciting features and structures in these caves include stalactites, stalagmites, and fallen rock blocks. The most exciting and vital part is the occurrence of old shells encrusting on the cave wall and roof. Radiocarbon dating indicated that the shells are about 5000 years old. The altitude of the shells clusters shows that the sea level was 2 m higher than the present level.
Floating Fish Farm
Set your fee and explore the local floating fish farm in Langkawi Kilim Geoforest Park that works as a modern fish-farming and proficiency system. A Fish Show is performed by the Geoforest Private Fish Farm and Restaurant staff.
You likewise can hand feed the stingray named Ali, Abu and Ahmad.3 Males in a similar net. Another fascinating fish you can discover here is the shooting archer that hops far out of the water to remove the piece of bread from your fingers.
Make sure to disclose beautiful high-vertical and interesting granite cliffs and limestone.
Located in the east of Langkawi is the largest of the three main parks, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, named after the river that runs through it and the rock strata that predominate.
The park is dominated by mangrove forests and picturesque karstic formations created through the dissolution and erosion of the limestone from the Setul Formation, which has produced numerous sea stacks, sea arches and pinnacles.
The mangrove forests have created an environment for several rare species of flora and fauna, such as the limestone cycad, which grows on vertical cliff faces, bright yellow sea hibiscus, and the iconic brahminy kite and sea eagle.
Pulau Dangli Beach
End your trip with a dip in the calm waters and watch colourful fishes swim by at the Dangli Island.
Pulau Dangli Beach is a small island to the north of Pulau Langkawi. The uninhabited island is visible from the beach at Tanjung Rhu.
Located 2 miles off the northern shore of Langkawi, Pulau Dangli is yet another crowd-pleaser with lots of vibrant aquatic life and coral reefs on offer. One can expect the scintillating views of large groupers and, if lucky, some rare ones. Calm seas and high visibility make snorkelling at Pulau Dangli Beach very easy.
