Sky Mirror in Kuala Selangor is also known as Malaysia’s very own “Salar de Uyuni” due to the similarity to a natural phenomenon in Bolivia.
The Sky Mirror is one of the hidden gems that can be found in Selangor but it is somewhat underrated. It is only accessible during certain dates in a lunar month, typically during low tides. It takes approximately 30 minutes to reach there by a speedboat from the Sky Mirror jetty.
Also, remember to wear vibrant-coloured clothes on your visit to Sky Mirror as they pop in pictures!

Many may not know the existence of the Sungai Selangor Dam as one of the best spots for stargazing activities!
Beginning its operations in 2003, the dam is located along the main road about 5 kilometres from Kuala Kubu Bharu town. The location is an ideal getaway for stargazers to enjoy astrophotography due to the fact that the Sungai Selangor Dam is not exposed to external lights. Also, the setting is somewhat isolated that the area is so amazing; thanks to the surrounding hills and lakes.
