Elephant Riding in Kuala Gandah

Elephant Sanctuary Kuala Gandah

This centre was established in 1989 by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks. A base for the Elephant Relocation Team which started in 1974.

Being the only centre in Malaysia, the team is dedicated to locating, subduing, translucent problem elephants from areas where their habitats are constantly being encroached by plantations, to Malaysia's National Parks such as Taman Negara.

Over the past 25 years the strong team has helped to prevent the further decline of the elephant population by relocating more than 300 wild elephants!

Kuala Gandah also aims to promote public awareness of the elephant's plight in Malaysia and to support research into elephant translocation and conservation. It also aims to educate the public about the importance of habitat and environmental preservation.

Cameron Highlands Tea Plantation

Cameron Highlands

Is Malaysia's largest and best-known hill resort. Discovered by, and named after William Cameron, a government surveyor who, in 1885 explored the area by hacking a path up through dense jungle and came across, "A fine plateau shut in by mountains". At 1524m above sea level the area enjoys a cool climate, with temperatures no higher than 20°C and rarely falling below 10°C, a welcome change to the generally oppressive heat and humidity at sea level.

Nestling the borders of Pahang and Perak provinces are the Cameron Highlands, Malaysia's most popular hill station destination. It is actually an area of tremendous natural beauty, encompassing tea farms, vegetable fields, flower gardens and challenging hiking trails with rushing waterfalls. It also finds tremendous favor with many budget travelers because of its cool climate which is in stark contrast to the hot, humid weather in most parts of the region. read more.....

Batu Caves

Batu Caves

Is a limestone hill, which has a series of caves and cave temples, located in Gombak district, 13 kilometers (8 miles) north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. Batu Caves is also the name of the nearby village.

The Batu Caves is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.

History
Interior of Batu Caves

The limestone forming Batu Caves is said to be around 400 million years old. Some of the cave entrances were used as shelters by the indigenous Temuan / Besisi people (a tribe of Orang Asli). As early as 1860, Chinese settlers began excavating guano for fertilising their vegetable patches. However, they became famous only after the limestone hills were recorded by colonial authorities including Daly and Syers as well as American Naturalist, William Hornaday in 1878.

Batu Caves was promoted as a place of worship by K. Thamboosamy Pillai, an Indian trader. He was inspired by the ‘vel’-shaped entrance of the main cave and was inspired to dedicate a temple to Lord Muruga within the caves. read more.....

Firefly Tour

Firefly or Fireflies

Are also called “Lightning Bugs”. Named as they are nocturnal luminous of the beetle family Lampyridae, consisting of about 1,900 ~ 2000 species that inhabit tropical and temperate regions. The common glow-worms is a member of this family. They shine in the night like fire to attract sexual partners.

Someone figured that the firefly hamlet as the eighth wonderful view. Why the fireflies only occur in the particular rendezvous?

The growth of the firefly must be mingled with the water of the runnels, woods and environment. The river must meet in the intersection of the fresh and salt-water. “Berembang” trees must be something that fancied fireflies a lot, in addition to this factors, the environment must be in its tranquillity besides free from contamination. read more.....
