LANGKAWI : KEDAH - NORTHERN REGION OF PENINSULAR MALAYSIA

PLACES OF INTEREST : Nature Attraction

 
 

Langkawi is blessed with geological marvels, among which is the legend-filled Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells).  Elsewhere are extraordinary rock formations and mysterious caves.

 

One of the most appealing features of Langkawi is the most of the natural attractions are reasonably easy to access.  A challenging climb up hill slopes, or a short forest trek, is sure to enrich one's experience.  A boat journey upriver through mangroves, or around uninhabited islands to reach a destination is a rewarding adventure in itself.

 

The islands of Langkawi are a stunning showcase of geological, biological and botanical evolution over millions of years. Within the age-old landscape are numerous caves with striking stalactites and stalagmites. There are also impressive waterfalls, lakes, rivers, unusual rock formations and an abundance of flora and fauna. Langkawi natural surroundings allow the visitor to experience a variety of island adventures - jungle trekking, nature walks, cave exploration, boating along rivers and through mangroves, bird-watching, wildlife photography, biking through the countryside, fishing and other forms of recreation.

 

For the more adventurous, cave exploration is exhilarating and challenging.  However, not all the caves in Langkawi are easily accessible. Some of them are a few hundred meters up in forested hills; some are deep among the mangroves environment, and others are sea caves accessible only by boat and may require an adrenalin-infusing crawl through narrow passageways.

 
 

SUNGAI KILIM

 

Offers some truly unforgettable sights and experiences for adventurous travellers to Langkawi. A tour that is bound to provide plenty of thrills is the boat cruise to Kilim Nature Park, an escapade to another world. Spread over an area of 100 square meters, Kilim Nature Park features a beautiful mix of well-protected green mangrove forests, isolated white beaches and blue lagoons. On the trail, along the calm winding river, you will be exposed to the wonders of the park?s marine ecosystem and flora and fauna like the overhanging Bogak Trees, Brown Eagles, Tree Crabs, iguanas and macaques.

 

Enjoy the scenic and spectacular view of unique limestone rock formations emerging from the floor of the mangrove swamps and the sea. These fascinating geological wonders have been dubbed the Temple of Borobodur. the Elephant Stone and the Hanging Gardens. Be a part of the eagle feeding experience as these predators wait silently to swoop down on the feed thrown into the water by the boatmen.

 
 
 

LAKE OF THE PREGNANT MAIDEN

(Tasik Dayang Bunting)

 

With its uniquely coined name, is sure to enthrall you with its beautiful surroundings and mysterious past. The name of this largest freshwater lake in Langkawi is attributed to the legend of a lovely fairy princess who married an earthly prince. Her first child died shortly afterbirth. She was so sad and depressed that she buried the child in the crystal clear waters of the lake. Before she returned to her celestial abode, she blessed the waters so that any childless maiden who bathed in the lake would conceive thereafter. To reach the lake one has to get to the Island of the Pregnant Maiden first and then take a short walk through the forest reserve.

 
 
 

CAVES

 

Worth exploring are Gua Cerita, which is easily accessible and only 30 minutes by boat from ?Ilinjung Rhu. Inside are interesting rock formations steeped in fabled tales of mystery and romance. Look out for ancient inscriptions on the walls. Another interesting cave is Gua Kelawar nestled in the heart of a mangrove. A wooden platform allows visitors easy access through the cave. Gua Pasir Dagang, about 45 minutes by boat from Kuah has a shallow stream running right through the cave. The boat journey to the cave itself is an adventure of sorts. Guides can be engaged for cave expeditions.

 
 
 

SEVEN WELLS / TELAGA TUJUH

 

Telaga Tujuh, located in the north-western corner of Langkawi, is a geological marvel. The waterfall is so named because the cascading waters are broken by a series of seven natural pools. The lush green forest that surrounds the waterfall adds a mystical touch to the natural splendour. Legend speaks of seven fairies that are supposed to reside in the area and of a prince who sought to capture the youngest and most beautiful of the fairies.

 
 
 

DURIAN PERANGIN WATERFALLS

 

It is suitable for picnics, a relaxing dip and recreation. This 14-tier waterfall, north from Kuah, is truly a sight to behold and is accessible after a short trek through the rainforest.

 
 
 

THE WHOLE IN THE WALL FISH FARM

 

It is a 10-minute boat ride from the Kilim river jetty. Try your hand at feeding the tame stingrays at the fish farm. Located in the Kilim mangrove area, which covers about 1,309 hectares, the stingrays are fed half a kg of fish daily.
