After which you will proceed on the 1 1/2 hour journey to Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, via the East Coast Highway, driving past the Titiwangsa mountain ranges, limestone hills and through the Malaysian rainforest.

Once the activities end, you will be given time to clean up and change out your wet and dirty clothes, before proceeding on the journey to Kuala Selangor.
