UNESCO GEOPARK PRIVATE TOUR:
THE FORGOTTEN FOREST BETWEEN LAND AND SEA
This excursion is the most highly recommended trip in Langkawi. Join our guide on this most memorable outing of the best Langkawi has to offer and take home lasting impressions of this magical place. Sheer limestone cliffs, fiords and sea stacks majestically rise like ancient temples out of the ocean. The porous nature of limestone that is continually exposed to the dehydrating sun, wind and salt from the oceans has resulted in the growth of a unique flora some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Rain and the tidal movements will weather and shape these stunning Karst formations giving rise to numerous caves, crevasses and canyons. Let our experienced guide take you back into time for a tour surely not to be missed.
