Bukit Melawati at Kuala Selangor

Bukit Melawati is a little hill at Kuala Selangor that is well worth visiting if you were thinking of visiting Kuala Selangor to see the magical fireflies. A perfect trip with kids over a weekend would start at about 3pm for a one hour drive to Bukit Melawati, then you either walk up the hill or take this train below. As I wasn’t aware how high up the hill was, I chose to take the train as it was hot and I had a headache whereas T1 walked with the rest of the family.

.

The hill is simple enough to find because it is right smack in the township of Kuala Selangor. They even have a Guardian Pharmacy there and it is exactly opposite these shop lots that you park your car before the climb.

.

As we took the bumpity train, this was our first view…….canons! Little did we know that Bukit Melawati at Kuala Selangor had such a rich history, a home to many of the Sultans of Selangor.

.

And as we approached the top of the hill, the view got better and better.

.

More canons! There must’ve been war up there! But it was so serene and beautiful…….

.

And the purpose for going up Bukit Melawati? To see these silver leafed monkeys. What’s special about these silver leafed monkeys? Their babies are born blond!!! I kid you not. It’s almost like they were inseminated by a foreigner……

.

See? This blonde monkey is baby to this silver leafed Mama. Really. He was sucking on her boobs.

.

T1 fed the monkeys, plenty of them. Until they all started walking towards her and she freaked out, like a gang moving towards her slowly about to attack her. I told her to stuff all her food into her pockets so they couldn’t see it. That worked.

.

There were so many monkeys all above on this tree and everywhere on the ground. I loved the sight of that tree……

.

Ten little monkeys, sitting on a tree……T1 and T2 make the missing three

.

The views are stunning……

.

So much greenery, so serene, fresh air all around. After walking this path, we got to the Batu Hamba (which I did not get a photo off on my camera!) but it is essentially where traitors and enemies were beheaded. I lay down on it to envision what it was like for the person about to die and was hoping that the Hubs’s camera would catch some spirits lurking around but no such luck. I guess everyone died happy.

.

We ended up at the burial ground of the 3 great Selangor Sultans but it was closed by 5pm so we didn’t get to go inside.

.

After we left Bukit Melawati to head for the Fireflies river, we spotted this quaint temple. I’d love to enter it one day, just to see what’s inside the cave!

Only 10 minutes away was the Fireflies River where we ate at this famous restaurant where you have to book in advance as it is always full. Come back for Part 2 to learn more about seeing the Fireflies in Kuala Selangor after climbing Bukit Melawati at Kuala Selangor.
