South East Asia is home to the highest diversity of mangroves species in the world and the mangroves around Langkawi are no different. Naturalist guide explains the mangrove ecology and its benefits to man and wildlife.
We often see spectacular kingfishers, sea eagles, kites, plovers, herons, fiddler crabs and mud skippers. We pass a local fishing station where local fishermen put to sea or return after a day out. We start kayak at slow pace to enjoy this serene river and pedal towards the open sea.
The kayak journey lasts about 90 minutes, followed by lunch at a local house. We then take a short drive and easy 500 meter hike to a secluded rainforest trail for a swim in a cool jungle stream.
