The weather is hot, I fish you were here...

Feeding stingrays at a Floating Fish Farm in Kilim Karst

In the final installment of our whirlwind tour around Langkawi's Geoforest Parks (see part 1 and part 2), we visited Kilim Karst Geoforest Park. We visited caves and fed fish at fish farms, while admiring the dramatic karsts surrounding the river where we anchored.

I was surprised at how much the boys enjoyed feeding the fish at the two farms we visited. Every time they tossed in food, the fish would jump up in a frenzy. The barramundi even made a startling snapping noise as they went for the food. Archer fish make their way in and out of the holding tanks.

It was funny how many boats stopped so that
people could photograph the sign
We have anchored in rivers a few times before (this anchorage is called "Hole in the Wall"), but we saw river otters for the first time--even though it was only a glimpse.

Gua Buaya (Crocodile Cave)

Every cave we visited, other than Gua Buaya and Gua Kelawar, had an elaborate walkway that was dangerous and closed for repair.

How does this go back together again?
Gua Langsir was actually more like a hong
A working fish farm (a 'grow up' farm as the friendly
manager described it)

We are now back in Kuah to stock up on groceries and wait for our remaining packages. Things continue to break (the outboard is leaking a bit of exhaust and the starboard bilge pump, which we just replaced in Kumai, is not automatically turning on again, among other things). There are no showstoppers at this point that can't wait until our haul-out in a month, but they're piling up.
