This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bukit Melawati, Kuala Selangor Malaysia

After picking up traveller from the hotel our driver will be driving up to 1 hour leaving Kuala Lumpur and will be arriving at Melawati Hill (Monkey Hill) at this area you may experience the nice view of Kuala Selangor and can explore the Fort Altingsburg, the Royal Mausoleum and the legendary 100 steps leading to the fabled execution block. You also can encounter with the silver-leaf monkeys at this spot.

The silvery lutung is a medium-sized monkey with a long, non-prehensile tail. It has grey-tipped, dark brown or black fur, giving it a uniform silvery appearance. Unlike some related species, there are no paler markings on the face or body, except for a patch of whitish hair on the groin of females. A crest of fur runs along the top of the head, and the hair on the cheeks is long, often obscuring the ears. The hands and feet are hairless, with dark coloured skin, and have opposable thumbs and toes.

Females range from 46 to 51 centimetres (18 to 20 in) in head-body length, with an average weight of 5.7 kilograms (13 lb) and a tail length of 67 to 75 centimetres (26 to 30 in). Males are slightly larger, from 50 to 58 centimetres (20 to 23 in) in length, with an average weight of 6.6 kilograms (15 lb) and a tail length of 67 to 75 centimetres (26 to 30 in).

Like other langurs, the silvery lutung has a large three-chambered stomach to digest the cellulose found in its herbivorous diet. This allows for fermentation of food, and has some similarities with the stomach of ruminants. The intestine is unusually long, even compared to those of other langurs, and has a number of pouches along its length, which carry out further fermentation of plant matter. The teeth have grinding ridges and other modifications to allow the more efficient processing of tough leaves.

Stop At: Kuala Selangor, Selangor, Malaysia

We will be leaving to Pasir Penambang or the fisherman village for you to go with a boat ride feeding the wild sea eagle session (Optional) and later can have a dinner at the seafood restaurant by the river of Kuala Selangor. After finish the dinner the main attraction is to go with a motor boat along the Kuala Selangor River to see or watch the fireflies at the mangrove area.

Fireflies, locally-known as ‘kelip kelip’, are perhaps Kuala Selangor’s biggest attraction. Emitting bright light from its abdomen, this bug tends to favour mangrove swamp areas. During the night, they can be seen illuminating the mangrove trees lining the riverbanks, while they feed on the leaves' nectar.
