Kilim Geoforest Park

Kilim Geoforest Park is a huge area in Langkawi island, famous with its mangrove swamps and beautiful hills getting out towards the Andaman Sea. On our Asian trip in the autumn of 2016 we took a riverboat cruise to enjoy what this place offers: A cave with full of bats, couple of fish farms, wonderful trees which are adopted their special air-breathing roots to hard mangrove habitat and the island’s symbol eagles where it gets the name. The word ‘lang’ refers to ‘eagle’ in local language and ‘kawi’ stands for ‘reddish brown’.

Langkawi adasındaki Kilim Geoforest Parkı, mangrov bataklıkları ve Andaman Denizi’ne doğru uzanan güzel tepeleriyle ünlü koca bir alandır. 2016 güzündeki Asya ziyaretimizde buranın tadını nehir turuyla çıkardık: Yarasa dolu bir mağara, birkaç balık çiftliği, zorlu mangrov ortamına ayak uydurmuş nefes alabilen kökleriyle şahane görünümlü ağaçlar ve adaya ismini de veren kartallar. Yerel dilde ‘lang’ kartal demekmiş ve ‘kawi’ de kızıl kahve.
