  • Nice place for tourists to understand about the history of Selangor and monkeys. You may also see lighthouse, fort and Malacca Strait there. There are lot of monkeys on top of the hill. We can have buy foods from the stalls over there to feed monkeys. The monkeys over there are kind and won't attack people. Anyway when they approach you for foods, just release your hands. Otherwise they will grab the foods from your hand aggressively.
  • Beautiful location to relax, feed monkeys and listen to birds. Recently it became more and more touristy. There's shuttle bus which brings you up the mountain for a few ringgit Beside the monkeys you can also learn about Malaysia's history, see the lighthouse and the straight of Melakka. Parking is plenty available at the base station and just a few meters further you can board the shuttle service.
