Off the beaten track, literally

You want off the beaten track? this is it. Not only are the watchtowers, bridges and walkway all crumbling, there is no attendant barring entry. You can just walk on in. But hey... read more

This park is located near the Bukit Melawati Lighthouse in Kuala Selangor. This park is famous for its various migratory birds.

Im a frequent visitor to this place. The hanging bridge has collapse, the wooden lookout tower is unsafe and some are decaying and crumbling. The mangrove walkway railing has all gone. Use to seeing lots of big monitor lizard before but now its becoming scarce probably due to poaching. Lots of monkeys though...

Easily reached from KL, this park is a superb combination of woodland, mangrove forest and wetland. There are pathways which allow the visitor to walk slightly longer or shorter distances. The wildlife is interesting, we saw, the water monitor, silver leaf monkey,the macaque,otter(?) and a multitude of birdlife. There is a boardwalk in the mangrove forest which takes you deep... More

Our extended family did an early,early morning trek around the boundary tracks.... we saw minimal birds and little wildlife...despite being used to bird/animal watching. The once well kept look-out towers have fallen in to disrepair... one can see the bones of what it once was but sadly now is a shell of it's former self.

It can be quite an interesting place for photographers who want to try out their skills in capturing the flight of the Brahminy Kite or the Grey Heron. Or do close-ups on the creatures of the mangrove swamp. If you're lucky, you might come across a cobra like I did. The authorities are currently carrying out improvement works to the... More

Quiet unique place in Selangor to enjoy the bird sanctuary in a mangrove ecosystem. You can spend the night in a cabin after boring drive from Kuala Lumpur. Go birdwatching in the morning and enjoying the view from the tower. Special birds from northern hemisphere will appear in migratory season on October-March.

It's a great get away place from a busy city like kl. As a nature and bird lover, really this nature park has offered a great set of birds, wildlife and facilities for the visitors. Accommodation - basic but it's sufficient. Price- reasonable. The only sad point is the maintaining of the boardwalk. Wooden boardwalk which lead to the rivermouth... More
