For the adventurous and nature lovers, Langkawi offers some truly unforgettable sights and experiences, particulary with the boat cruise to to explore Kilim Geoforest Park - an escapade to another world.

Spread over an area of 100sq. km, Kilim Geoforest Park features a beautiful mix of well protected green mangrove forests, isolated white beaches and blue lagoons. Along the trail, passing through calm winding river, you will be exposed to the wonders of the park's marine ecosystem, flora and fauna and its natural habitats. Some tour operators will stop at a special spot along the river where they feed the eagles, found in great numbers here. These include the white-bellied fish eagle, brahminy kite and the gigantic sea eagles. Kilim Geoforest Park is also a great place for some birdwatching during the migratory seasons in September and March.

Admire the natural beauty of the overhanging "Bogak Tree", Tree Crabs, Iguanas and Macaques. Enjoy the scenic and spectacular views of unique limestone rock formations emerging from the floor of the mangrove swamps and the sea. These fascinating geological wonders have been variously dubbed as the Temple of Borobodur, the Elephant Stone and the Hanging Gardens. Gua Cerita (Cave of Legends) and Gua Kelawar (Bat Cave) are accessible via Sungai Kilim.
