The 20 min boat ride was really worth. The biggest firefly colony was really worth the wait and watch. We had done this tour with Shajasa tours. Their arrangements were perfect.

We got there early so asked if we could see an eagle feeding while we waited for sundown. I'm glad we sid. They put you in (very musty) life vests and take you in a motor boat to middle of the lake and throw a bucket full of chicken bits into the water and cut the engines. The sun setting... More

I paid RM145 to take this event because it did not included in the package tour offered by my travel agent. Apart from the boat journey, the price covered the return transportation from KL and a dinner. The boat journey took about 10 minutes but it took 3 hours of return transportation from KL. Because of the darkness, I did... More

This is a MUST see! We drove in a boat to a pretty much dark place and then suddenly there were thousands of fireflies.. wow.. magnificent.. just loved it. The driver was kind of to let us ride the boat ourselves :P

Simply an amazing experience, coming at night and seeing mango trees lit up with hundreds of fireflies. Definitely worth a visit, but it is >1 hour from KL so you would need to combine it with other things or you may feel bit like underwhelmed for all the travelling.

There are 2 sites to see the fireflies,the (a)manual row boat and (b)motorized boat.Insist to take the more authentic manual row boat site. The row boat will row to a bigger ,closer mangrove site to see the more fireflies.The row boat is much quieter,and will row very close to the fireflies resting tree branches.The site covered by the rowboat had...
