The access route, 13 km long, is a hike to Bukit Larut. The only exception would be at the foot of the hill, where you can choose to walk the first part through the jungle track. The Jungle Trail merges back to the 2km access route. It is a 1 km walk of almost consistent uphill, which takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. Since there are quite a number of trail diversions, the numbered checkpoints (10 in total) are labelled on the trees. For those who are not inclined to walk up Bukit Larut, you can take the Jeep service from the foot of the hill to Bukit Larut Station. The jeep runs hourly (program subject to environmental conditions).

Kuala Sepetang, Fireflies

There's something calming about watching the fireflies shine in the forest. You just have to witness this for yourself, as no amount of words will do justice to the firefly cruise. The still silent river adds to the experience, giving off a calming feeling as you indulge in the rhythmic glow of these beautiful winged creatures.

Mangrove trees called berembang trees grow along the banks of the river Sungai Sepetang. These are the trees where fireflies gather adult male fireflies to attract females. The life circle of the fireflies is around six months, most of them as larvae. The adult fireflies had only lived 2 weeks to find their mates. The female will die after mating.
