    Kilim Karst Geoforest Park Langkawi, spanning almost 100 square kilometres, is noteworthy for mangrove swamps, pristine beaches, and vertical karstic hills jutting out towards the Andaman Sea. Set along the northeast tip of Langkawi Island, the park is accessible within a five-minute drive from Tanjung Rhu Beach.
     
    There’s a good variety of wildlife found in Kilim Karst Geoforest Park Langkawi, ranging from otters and monitor lizards to macaques and tree crabs hiding amongst the thick mangroves.

  • Scattered across Kilim Karst Geoforest Park Langkawi are limestone formations that are over 500 million years old, with unique names such as Temple of Borobodur, the Elephant Stone and the Hanging Gardens. There are also numerous caves that are filled with fossils as well as gigantic stalagmite and stalactites, namely Crocodile Cave, Cave of Legends, and Bat Cave.

    The best way to explore this protected landscape is via riverboat cruise along Kilim River which is priced between RM200 and RM500. Aside from a leisurely experience with an experienced nature guide, visitors are also chartered to the limestone caves and a floating fish farm where they can handfeed stingrays and archer fishes.

    If you prefer to explore this expansive mangrove park at your own pace, there are private boats, kayaks and jet-ski rentals available with most tour operators in Langkawi. Be sure to wear sunscreen and comfortable clothing as it can get rather sunny at Kilim Karst Geoforest Park Langkawi.
