Its about an hour and 45 minutes ride from KL with the new highway. You can find the place easily, we just used waze. Ample of parking spaces for visitors. You get your tickets at the counter which will cost RM53 ( the price was RM40 early this year) per boat of 4 people. You can get the whole boat... More

We reached here on the Hari Raya weekend and it was very crowded but the line moved fast and soon we were on a small boat on a dark river and told there were lots of fireflies on the opposite bank, and we could not spot a thing. Then it happened, we got close to the bank and suddenly it... More

It's a 2 hour drive from KL. Don't wear shorts & put on mosquito repellent. We started at 9pm, I was lucky, there was no moon, no wind, no clouds, no rain, just perfect condition to watch the fireflies. The non-motorised flat bottom sampan sits 4 only, an english-speaking guide cum gondolier rows you across the river. Within 5 minutes,... More

Took about 45 minutes from KL. Better arrive earlier as the tour with "sampan" traditional boat without motor starts around 7 ish in evening or sunset. Please wear some long t-shirt and long pants or else you will be attacked by mosquitoes. The sampan can accommodate up to 4 peoples. Check the weather as well.

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

Gowithanuar was an excellent way to see this attraction. The guide was great and the sight of the trees lighting up like they had been dressed up for Christmas was awesome. Toilets at the park were disgusting.

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
