Explore Batu Caves with its 272-steps, limestone caves and outcrops, said to be around 400 million years old, with caves filled with images of deities and murals depicting scenes of the Hindu Scriptures, and see the many monkeys living in and around the caves. One of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. The Elephant Sanctuary was established in 1989 by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks. Watch how these wondrous creatures live in harmony and if you're lucky, you might be able to play with some of the baby elephants, ride the adult elephants, feed them and even bathe with them in the river. Learn all about the importance of habitat and environmental preservation as you fall in love with these gentle creatures. See the famed colonies of fireflies of Kuala Selangor with a stop at Fort Altingsburg built by the Dutch. In 1909, the British built a lighthouse here which is still standing. Feed rare silver-leafed monkeys which are quite tame that live in the forest surrounding the hill. Row upstream in a small un-motorized boat in the quiet darkness to witness the blinking trees, a scintillating display of fireflies. The synchronized, rhythmic flashing is produced by the thousands of fireflies.
