You’ll see Langkawi from the water on this tour, as you explore the dense mangroves and wildlife-filled caves by boat. Once you’re aboard, you’ll coast between the grass-tufted limestone peaks that line up on either side of Kilim Karst Geoforest Park. This weaving river’s an animal lover’s dream, so a set of binoculars wouldn’t be a bad idea. When you reach the mangroves, keep your eyes peeled – it’s not uncommon to spot monitor lizards, macaque monkeys and otters here. You might hear the patter of wings when you enter the low-ceilinged bat cave – there’s no sign of Bruce Wayne in this version, though. Wild eagles are native to these parts, and if the situation’s right, you’ll be able to watch them feed once they’ve finished swooping among the lagoons and rocky outcrops.
Sensible shoes are required for this excursion - flip flops are not suitable. You will board the 10 - 12 seater boats via a plastic floating pontoon which will move, expect a bit of walking, stairs, slippery and uneven paths. Watch your heads as you enter the Bat Cave, you'll need to duck.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
