Fireflies, locally-known as ‘kelip kelip’, are Kuala Selangor’s biggest attraction. Emitting bright light from its abdomen, this bug tends to favour mangrove areas.
Discover local birds, silver leaf monkeys and long-tailed macaques during the river cruise and enjoy local dinner at the village.
This tour takes you southwest of the city, travelling through the rural countryside. Reaching Kuala Selangor Wetland Reserve, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking scenery of the mangrove forests, home to an incredibly nocturnal beetle commonly called firefly. Unlike all other beetles, fireflies have a remarkable ability to produce a synchronous flashing light from their lower abdomen during the night time.
As the sun starts its descent towards the horizon, cruise on a boat upriver and discover the exquisite beauty of these bioluminescent creatures dancing and swaying rhythmically along both sides of the river. Don’t miss the chance to see this unusual nighttime phenomenon which is also makes for some interesting photography.
After the tour, you will be transferred to your hotel.
*Please be informed that spotting fireflies is not guaranteed due to their unpredictable nature*
