Tour to fireflies with Russian speaking guide. The brightest fireflies live in the tropics. The area of mangrove thickets of Malaysia is one of those amazing places where fireflies turn the forest into New Year trees every evening. During this excursion you can witness this miracle of nature.
First of all you arrive in a small town called Kuala Selangor near Kuala Lumpur.
While the sun has not yet sunk below horizon, there is be an opportunity to communicate with amazing creatures – silvery monkeys. Unlike importunate macaques, these guys are sociable, neat and patient. They inhabit the whole hill and regularly interact with human, letting them pet both themselves and their surprisingly orange younglings. Treat them with some ripe bananas, and you will get more friends in the wild.
After communicating with monkeys, you go to the main attraction – to the river, which serves as home to thousands of fireflies. On a boat you pass along mangroves, which shimmer with the mysterious green light of living pieces of art. Its author, nature, created these beetles unusually energy-intensive. So, only 5% of the total energy is converted into visible light in electric light bulbs, but fireflies use more than 90%! Their unique glow is the way of communication.
In this manner, the gentlemen tell the ladies about their feelings, and those either reciprocate, or flirtatiously and ambiguously wink. Sometimes you can see how a whole tree shines with a soft, synchronous twinkle. This is a single flock, whose intensity of glow can be different from the flock on a nearby tree. Each flock develops its own rhythm, and it does not get lost either by rain or wind. So fireflies distinguish representatives of their species from others. Truly, a trip to the firefly river is one of those wonders of nature that Malaysia is rich in, and it is definitely worth seeing at least once in your life with your own eyes.
