Central Route (ex Kuala Lumpur ) and the first site that we will visit is the mangrove forest of the Kuala Selangor Nature Park and the surrounding areas. Mangroves are a very unique ecosystem, which is influenced by the rise and fall of the tides. Second site is the hill resort of Fraser’s Hill (also part of an IBA) for highland & lower montane birds. Here we will get to see about 50 -70 highland species and we will hope to catch good views of mostly sunda endemics. The third site is Bukit Tinggi where we will target a rare endemic and other highland birds. Our adventure concludes at one of South East Asia’s finest national park – Taman Negara. It is the most favored birding destination for Peninsula Malaysia to primarily get the fantastic lowland birds.
