Geopark is an area with an appropriate size and well-defined borders that contain nationally or internationally significant geosites and is developed in such a way as to increase the local community’s appreciation of the economic value and cultural significance of the geosites through tourism-based activities.
Geopark is the area where several disciplines—ecology, archaeology, geology, history, and culture—are brought together and managed comprehensively and effectively so that their interdependence is bolstered.
Spanning over 112,955 hectares, the Gombak – Hulu Langat Geopark includes Gombak District and Hulu Langat District. The Gombak District Administration, which has its headquarters in the Gombak District and Land Office, is responsible for two Local Authorities: the Selayang Municipal Council and the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council. Meanwhile, although the Hulu Langat District and Land Office serve as the administrative centre, the Kajang Municipal Council is the Local Authority in charge.
