#3 of 6 in Things to do in Kuala Selangor
The Kuala Selangor Nature Park is a park located by the mouth of Selangor River in Kuala Selangor District, Selangor, Malaysia. It was established by the Selangor state government in 1987 and has been managed by the Malaysian Nature Society on behalf of the state government ever since the park's establishment.With a total area of 2.4km2, the park is a combination of secondary forest and wetland with a man-made coastal bund separating the wetland from the forest. Inside the park itself is a large pond surrounded by another bund. A water lock connecting the pond with the river controls the water level of the pond.The park, as part of the Selangor River estuary, is home to a number of large bird species such as milky storks and herons as well as primates, namely silver leaf monkeys and macaques. The area was a breeding ground of an endangered milky stork species before the program was suspended. An abandoned aviary still stands in the middle of the park.

    It is about 1 hour and a half from Kuala Lumpur. After dinner on a boat to the Firefly. Pulled aboard several ships were running normally at first, but with full power from sea spray pretty quickly while I ran. You can see lot of Firefly Firefly size seems to be half of the grain it is, anyway. Looks like small LED lights. I think I better go and see. And must wear a life jacket is hot anyway. Also, not insect repellent to feet and get off at several places becomes itchy. Scratch ankle because ships in the narrow and hanging it.

    Approximately 1 hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur. And wear a life jacket from the 7:30 PM (and dress up this hot! ) Boarded a boat to the Selangor River. Myriad of fireflies flashing. It's more emotional, was mysterious. Long passed what is described in the mouth. Very small types of fireflies; It feels slow flashing fast and desperately alive. (Course released!) had a Firefly catch is prohibited, but flies up near the boat and descended into the Palm of your hand because it was at night, with the new moon fine good luck there are plenty of stars in the sky, watch the fireflies, sky watching (laughs) Guide, I said, was it was more. The theory that disappear after 20 years as recommended.

    Good experience on nature and tropical rain forest for the novice. Enjoy walking with family. Plan to spend one night in the chalet when the time permits.

    Good introduction to Malaysian wildlife. Worth spending a night at the chalets, even though they are rather basic (bring all your own water for washing). You get to see nocturnal animals like civets, plus be up early for all the activity at dawn.
