Take a trip to Bukit Malawati at Kuala selangor. On a weekend there is a tractor train that will take you to the top where the lighthouse is situated. If you go on a weekday you can drive to the top. Once on top you will overlook the Straits of Malacca. This was also a look out point for marauding... More

After a delightful drive of nearly 45 minutes through the countryside we arrived at Bukit Melawati. the monkey were the friendliest we had ever seen. We loved playing with them and giving them food and taking videos/photos. The drive up was also amazing on the train. We saw other monkeys on our trip but they weren't as friendly as Silver... More

We went on a public holiday which meant we had to catch the train/tractor, it was cheap. The kids loved the ride up to the top of the mountain. There are a lot of monkeys waiting to be fed, it was a good experience but again it was so disappointing to see rubbish everywhere. I felt really sad watching the... More

The beautiful Silver Leaf Monkeys was absolutely superb. The gentleness of these animals is amazing and feeding them is a must. Also, the cannons with the monkeys sitting on them makes for a very good photo opportunity due to the spectacular scenery around Bukit Melawati itself.

About an hour's drive from KL, the silverleaf monkeys at Bukit Melawati were an absolute highlight and worth the drive. The monkeys happily eat from your hands and climb all over you. We were here for about an hour and could easily have stayed longer. My ten year old was desperate to go back the next day!

fresh air and greenish made us start our day powerfully. Morning is the right time to go as the weather will be a bit hot during evening.

View was great. Many monkeys there and bustling with people. There are vendors who sell you foo to feed to the monkeys there. Beware of getting your stuff snatched though. Very much worth the long car ride.

Went there during a weekend with fairly large crowd. The view is great. But personally I think those that like outdoor exploration should check out the many trails around. If you stop at the top and just wander around, not much could be seen except the great view. I'd suggest that take the tram up and then walk down through... More

Well, the tram is cheap with RM 5, we enjoy the beautiful scenery from top of the mountain and there are a lot of Monkeys waiting to be fed! Not bad. However later the tram will stop by Taman Ikan Air Tawar which is a HUGE DISGRACE. The aquarium is empty, poorly maintained, with fish stuck in the water tank... More

For those looking for an interesting weekend get away from the city or those heading to see the Fire Flies at Kuala Selangor, I would highly recommend you make a stop at the Bukit Melawati Hill. Other than that, there is generally not much to do up here so many locals and some tourist will visit this place for about... More
