TAMAN ALAM NATURE PARK On the estuary of Sungai Selangor, at the foot of Bukit Malawati and reached by a flight of steps from the hill, is Taman Alam Nature Park in Kuala Selangor. The park itself spans over 240 hectares and is home to a variety of plant and animal life.
If you’re looking for some peace of mind, or simply to get out of the house and explore the land, then Taman Alam Park fits into that description well another attraction of notice here is the Altingsburg Lighthouse, which was built back in the 18th century.
Getting is relatively cheap with adults being charged RM 2 and children being charged 50 sen. The Park is open from 7am to 7pm so you have an ample amount of time to stroll through the forest. We recommend spending about 1-3hours to soak up some nature and try out one of the trails.

Inside the 240-hectare park are three ecosystems – secondary forest, a man-made lake and a mangrove forest with views out to sea – and you can explore them all on a series of five trails lasting between 20 minutes and two hours, including a raised walkway above the mangroves.
Taman Alam Nature Park Highlights
There are three bird-watching towers in the park that you can climb up to get a better overview of the park. Around 150 species of birds have been spotted in the park, though we’re not going to pretend we know what any of them are, I’m sure it would get most bird-watchers turned on. The man-made lake is peaceful and makes for a great picnic location.
