There is really not much to recommend this place, there is a little tram which goes up in a 2-3 min journey or you can walk it up in 15 -20 min at a relaxed pace. The view is nice enough (not great), it gets crowded on weekends, there are a lot of vendors who sell you foodstuffs to feed... More

Accessible could be quite difficult during weekend. There are parking spaces on the top of the hill. If you are lucky, there will be some monkeys feeding session :)

Walk up the hill (15 min, gentle slope) or take the kitschy train (you lazy) to see hundreds of monkeys waiting to be fed. Buying them food is at your own risk. The silver leaf monkeys seem kinda gentle, but watch out for the more aggressive macaques. Obviously, it's totally wrong to feed wild animals. But I gotta admit, I... More

Since my friends and I did not see many silver leaf monkeys in Kuala Selangor Nature Park and the monkeys were too afraid of us, we came to Bukit Melawati. The monkeys here only wanted food, like apple, peanuts, and bananas. They gathered around, jumped on, and followed us for food. We also brought our bags and phones with us... More

If you are looking for more relaxing weekends out of the city, Melawati Hill has something different and interesting to offers for you. The first in Malaysia where you can feed the monkeys in close range. There are two types of monkeys, silver-leafed and long tailed macaque’s families. The Melawati hill is not just history place that was build in... More

You'll be asked if you want to buy food for the monkeys and you probably will... But the minute the monkeys know you have something, they will stop at nothing to get it off you! It's cute if you aren't freaked out about 2-3 primates hanging off your arms /head/legs to get their goodies but for my four year old... More

Kids would enjoy the experience feeding the monkeys. There are two types of monkeys, Silver leaf monkey (black) and Marcaque (brown). Silver leaf monkey is very gently but watch out for the Marcaques, they can be a little notorious. Do not let your small toddler hold any food. There is a small museum you can visit at the top. There... More

The trem up costs RM5 per adult inclusive of a visit to so-called aquarium air tawar (before 5pm). Nothing much. Only monkeys and nice scenery where you can see the straits and view from above. There is a museum up there, free admission. There is no shades besides the museum. When it rains, all the best. The aquarium was horrible.... More
