KL Visitors Guide


HOME > VISITORS GUIDE > PLACES TO VISIT > KL LAKE GARDENS AREA > BUTTERFLY PARK


Suitable for all ages to get out of the city for a relaxing atmosphere while watching spectacular butterflies all set out in beautiful gardens. This is the largest butterfly garden in the world spanning over 80,000 sq ft of landscaped gardens with over 5,000 live butterflies, exotic plants and ferns.

Other attractions here 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 park is an imitation of the butterfly's natural habitat set in beautiful gardens that has a hydro-pond with a limestone path right in the centre. Surrounding this hydro-pond is a gazebo that provides a breathtaking view of the park.

To prevent the butterfly's from escaping the whole park is covered by a net. To create such a beautiful park they used over 15,000 flower and fruit plants essential for their diet and pollinating activities of the butterflies.

Watching as it emrges from its pupae
The environment is one of quiet atmosphere, peacefulness, and of being totally feel relaxed. It takes about a hour to walk through slowly looking at everything and most probably a stay about two hours to enjoy the environment.

You can see the butterflies roaming freely, resting on the leaves of the plants and on fruits such as pineapple


The butterflies are spectacular, especially the birdwings and there are lots of pupae around, some of which actually emerge if you watch patiently.


The Butterflies are quite used to humans so they don't normally fly away when you get close and would at times land on you to sip the minerals from your skin as you perspire.

 

At the hydro pond, you can enjoy feeding the fish - bring some fish food that you can buy at the outside counter.
