Truly an enjoyable experience feeding the hordes of tame monkeys which were everywhere. There's also a small museum with no air conditioning. The view at the top was spectacular, one could see the ocean. Will visit again.

It is best you travel in group, not alone and without foods on your hand! There is a lots of hungry monkeys. Normally they wont attack you, just stay a distance will do. Hike up to the highest point and you will have a great view of Kuala Selangor!

Do this! If you're in Kuala Selangor for the fireflies, don't miss a stop at this park. Buy the food, hold it above your shoulder, enjoy feeding a monkey chilling on your shoulder.
