This is worth for the nice view from the peak but, mostly, to be in contact with the silver monkeys. They are so friendly, so attentive! It was a marvelous experience to feed and interact with them. If you can, bring your fruit from the market.

Some people might say that two hours to go and two more on the way back from Selangor fort is to much for what one may find there. I was there and I say if you have enought time, a morning spent on the Selangor hill is time well spent. I traveled by bus from HSBS building near the Central... More

We went there on weekends and there's a trams that available to run up to the hills from the foothill for a fee of RM5.00 per adult and RM3.00 per child. On top of hill stands a huge and well maintained light house that was built in the year 1907. Visitors are not allowed to go into this light house... More

may be the previous tripadvisor reviews had hyped the expectations, but personally there was nothing much in the place. there were lot of monkeys around the entire place especially concentrated near the light house. I had a few photographic opportunities as i was around the sunset time. Personally i feel it is not a very attractive tourist destination.

I have ridden my bike up here half a dozen times and have yet to be harassed by monkeys. The view is nice (not spectacular), the site historical, and a great place to stop for a break. Not sure about having to walk or take a tram up the hill ... we just rode our motorbikes up to the lighthouse.

Surprisingly nice place to visit.! If you can handle monkeys climbing up onto your shoulder .... surrounded by animals wanting food... BUT NOT menacingly like their other little brown rat bag attacking cousins... then these Silver leafed monkeys are for you...

A must visit to Kuala Selangor. Beautiful view towards the sea from the row of cannons. Parking were limited at the lighthouse. The museum was interesting to visit, free of charge. Don't forget to feed the monkeys. There were sellers selling foods for monkey & cendol (a local dessert; for humans of course). But the monkeys seemed to dislike the... More

Bukit Melawati was once the darling of Kuala Selangor. Those days we could travel up hill by car. Nowdays, you could either walk up hill for free or take the Kuala Selangor Municipal tram to go up hill at RM 5.00 for adults which is quite an experience. Historically, Bukit Melawati was important for the survival of the state of... More

Apart of the fireflies in kuala selangor, this is another place worth for visit. Tram service is available during weekends for RM5 per person included a round trip up hill to see the famous silver monkeys and a entrance ticket to the fresh water fish aquarium. P/S: please put on mosquitoes repellant before the visit.
