Itinerary

You will pick up from your hotel by a air conditioned vehicles and you will reach Kilim river , You will need to take a tour on a motor boat that starts from the Kilim Jetty or the Tanjung Rhu bay area both located at the north eastern end of Langkawi. A guided boat tour would be ideal to appreciate all the attractions in Kilim Geopark.

The boat ride will initially take you along the Kilim river with dense green mangroves (also known as wetland mangroves) on one side and gigantic limestone rocks on the other rising from the river bed. Some of these limestone rocks that look like mountains, have been formed some 500 million years back. The mangroves serve to protect the shoreline from the sea and prevent soil erosion by forming a barricade.

Keep a watch at the mangrove area and the muddy flats, you will see lots of amazing animal life. Other than squirrels, mud crabs and monkeys, you will also see Monitor Lizards that can easily dive and stay underwater for a long time. The lizards are harmless though. Sometimes you will also see crocodiles. In the waters there are many varieties of fish (some 40 species) and if you are lucky, you can also spot a dolphin or even an otter. There are several species of birds that you can see in the geo park including the popular kingfishers and kite birds. But the most majestic of all are the reddish brown eagles that hover around the sky in plenty. You are also likely to spot white bellied sea eagle which is hard to find elsewhere.

In about 10 minutes you will reach the Floating Fish Farm. Here you can hand feed a stingray or even the shooting archer fishes that jump a long way out of the water to take away the bread piece from your fingers. And then you will be taken to a calm water area surrounded by high rocks and forest where you will see a grand spectacle Eagle Feeding.
Next the operator may then take you to the lovely Tanjong Rhu beach full of soft white sands and fringed with casuarina trees. This is where you will spend some 1 hour time swimming (if you so like) and take some refreshments at the stalls. At the beach side restaurant, chill down with some fresh coconut water or stroll along the coastal road. There are many stalls selling clothes and local souvenirs on both sides of the road.
After lunch, you are taken to a calm water area on the river which is full of mangrove swamps on both side. As the boatman brings the boat close to the shore, large number of monkeys appear from nowhere expecting peanuts to be thrown to them
Next you will be taken to the Crocodile Cave. You aren't likely to find any crocodiles here . The final stop is at the Bat Caves. which is located quite close to the Kilim Jetty. Other than awesome sight of large colonies of bats hanging from the ceiling and flying all over your head, Bat Cave showcases stunning formations of limestone and then Finally safely drop back to your hotel
