Paya Indah Wetlands is located in Dengkil which is about 20 minutes drive away from Putrajaya.
Do not confuse this place with Putrajaya Wetland which is located near the Tropical Botanical Garden of Putrajaya. Many visitors mistakenly ended up at Putrajaya Wetland which is basically a park with a lake where you can do kayaking and canoeing here.
This wetlands was formerly a mining land and the government had spent millions into rehabilitating this area. The total area is 3,100 hectares which consists of lakes, marshes and lowland tropical forest. If you like nature, this is the place where the flora and fauna thrive. Here are some figures of them.
The wetlands is divided into three zones.
Walk-in visitors are only allow to enter the Recreation Zone. You will need to book 1-3 weeks in advance to go into the other two zones which also require a guide to enter. A guide fee will be charge which comes to about RM120 for 4 hours and limited to 12 visitors per group.
The recreation zone is accessible by foot or car. If you are not in a rush, taking a walk and enjoy the flora and fauna is a good idea. Better still, you can rent a bicycle if it is available. Here are some activities you can do while on this zone.
These two zones are only available if you do at least 1-3 weeks of advance booking. A guide is a must for a maximum of 12 persons. Night safari, bio-diversity education for students and a day at Paya Indah Wetlands programmes are available. Further information will be provided by contacting the centre using the contacts below.
