This is a must go place in Kuala Selangor. Yes there were lots of monkeys but there were also other interesting attractions like the 'Perigi Beracun', 'Makam Diraja' etc. If you can, please walk up the hill rather than taking the tram. But of course if you have small kids, taking the tram would be joyful for them. It depends... More

Drive all the way up! Its a one way drive up. The scenery on top was great! Its a fort for monkeys too btw LOL, we saw monkeys chasing after rats. Prepare your own bananas if you wanna feed them and not pay for expensive bananas at the fort.

Was a great experience with the family! We took the little train up and around the hill (too hot to walk) and had a great time feeding the monkeys. There were 2 kinds of monkeys there - the mild-mannered silver leaf langurs (with orange babies) and the more aggressive common macaques. Just stay away from the macaques and keep to... More

Have you seen an orange coloured monkey in your life? If not, Bukit Melawati is the place to go. Besides playing and feeding the monkeys, you can observe the glorious past of the light house built by Dutch and also the royal mausoleums. This is a place where you encounter with nature and you can learn a great deal of... More

What a great experience, we visited with 3 kids 5-8Yo and had a ball, the monkeys are very friendly & are quite happy to hop on your shoulder for a free feed. A vendor was selling bags of food for 10 ringgit & there were lots of eager primates ready for a hand out, A couple of the bigger males... More

Went with kids and one got bitten by a monkey! We had to get her the immunoglobulin to protect her against rabies & 4 rabies vaccines to follow. Not a great visit, from now on will keep our distance from monkeys and other wild animals.

We hired a half day tour out of KL specifically to see the monkeys, and weren't disappointed. The first ones, up the hill by the power lines, were the very gentle, quite shy ones. The second stop at the side of the road, half way down the hill had the two different types of monkeys. They are all so tame,... More

I went with my husband who likes monkeys, I do not, but this place is amazing. Just be careful of your belongings. If you go you will enjoy it

A hill with a nice view and a lot of monkeys (like several places in Malaysia). It's not bad if it's part of a tour, but clearly the place itself does not worth the moving.

Came here as part of a half day firefly tour. The monkeys were the first stop, just in a car park. There are people selling food for the monkeys and if you hold it above your head the monkeys will come at you and climb up to the food. There are a lot of monkeys around the ground and in... More
