"We’ve been here several times over the years. Some visits we would see plenty of butterflies and others like today we saw not as many. More of the Rajah Brooke butterflies during this visit. Still it’s a relaxing stroll around the water features in the garden. Some displays of frogs, fish and turtles. Cool down in the air-conditioned display area if the day is too hot. Good information on butterflies, insects and others (mantis, scorpions, beetles and other bugs)."
From the words of the internationally renowned programme- Discovery Channel,
in an interview and broadcasted to over 200 million viewers worldwide, it says “of all the butterfly parks in the world, none can compare with this one”.
Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park is a veritable secret paradise where butterflies actually dance nonchalantly in clumps of fern amidst scented beautiful flowers and flowering vines.
Other attractions are japanese koi fish, fresh water turtles, live insects and a museum with a large collection of butterflies and insects from around the world.
The Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park is situated near the Lake Gardens. The park is an imitation of the butterfly's natural habitat and that's the tropical rainforest.
To prevent the butterfly's from escaping the whole park is covered by a net. Don't pay attention to that, because it's high above you.
The Butterfly Park houses some 6,000 butterflies of over 120 species. To create such a beautiful park they used over 15,000 plants and there are ponds.
You can also take rest along the limestone paths in the butterfly park.
Butterfly's fly around you and here and there they have placed some fruits, like pineapple.
We have visited many Butterfly Parks (among others on Penang and in the Cameron Highlands), but no one was as beautiful as this one.
You can see the butterfly's resting on the leaves of the plants. Sometimes they rest on you! The views from the gazebo are spectacular.
On your way out you go through an informative insect museum, where you can also see some living animals.
After the museum you come into a souvenir shop, where you can buy local handicrafts, frames butterflies and beetles. Close to the Butterfly Park is The Bird Park en The Orchid Garden.
Duration time: 1 hour.
