Mangrove & Limestone Tour
Explore the amazing mangrove forest by boat, with an introduction to the limestone forests on the slopes of stunning limestone outcrops of north east Langkawi.
Travel by boat with an English speaking naturalist through the twists and turns of the Kilim river through the maze created by aerial roots and thick fleshy leaves of the mangrove trees.
Wildlife is abundant, we observe the bizarre land walking fish, vividly colored kingfishers, eagles and often otters and dolphins.
We often see other mangrove animals that make their home in this delicately balanced ecosystem which is responsible for the health and wide variety of species in the Andaman Sea.
We also explore how the mangrove area is a perfect environment for cottage industries such as processing charcoal and fish farms. The kayak journey lasts about two and a half hours, followed by a short drive and easy 500 meter hike to a secluded jungle stream for a picnic lunch and swimming in a cool jungle stream.
As we venture out of the mangroves youll see majestic limestone rock formations and sea stacks that rise dramatically from the ocean. This ancient coral thrust into the sky millions of years ago is home to a unique and ancient group of plants found no where else on earth.
This trip is highly recommended for all visitors to Langkawi.
