These caves are hard to get to but well worth the effort. We were amazed by the sheer size of it all. The guide's English and knowledge made it a great experience. We took tour 2. The hour and half flew by. JA(Australia)

This was the first time for my cave explore adventure, you will have to bring your own torch because there is no light if you join for tour 3 or 4. Tour 1&2 will be walking along in the cave with lighting system and with stairs. But tour 3/4, you have to prepare to get wet, but it's fun as... More

You need at least 4 - 10 persons to tour the Gua and it is very hard to find the contact information. They also state that the tour is only until Thursday but they actually have during the weekends. It is poorly organized and although I am sure the caves are wonderful, the tour guides and agents need to buck... More

You feel that you travelled back in time to the cave era where it's pitch black if you turn off your torch light. I took the Grand Tour route (longest route) and find it to be quite relaxing overall, challenging at perhaps 8 parts in the cave that involve some climbing, crawling and sliding. The tour will approximately take you... More

All excited, me and my friends woke up early at around 7.am and called up a taxi to take us to the caves. But when we reached there, to our surprise it was CLOSED FOR RENOVATION! Wasted all our money just going and coming back from that place, considering that our hotel was quite far from the caves. what pissed... More

If you don't have enough time to see the Mulu-caves or Niah-caves on Borneo the Tempurong caves 25 km south of Ipoh are a good alternative to at least get an idea of how huge caves in Malaysia can be. Getting there on public transport is a bit tricky, but possible: from Ipoh, bus station Medan Kidd, take bus 66... More

A visit to Malaysia should include a visit to the caves in Gua Tempurong (Gopeng, Perak, Malaysia). The interiors of the cave are simply breathtaking! According to the locals, there is a much better (and bigger) caves formation but we think this is perfect already for those who have very limited time. We were coming from Cameron Highlands (on the... More

I'm definitely rating this 5 star. Unfortunately we didn't allow much time to visit this cave because we were unaware it offered anything other than short cave tours. Boy were we surprised and kicking ourselves for not looking into this properly before we planned our trip. Firstly, there's plenty of parking here. Cave tours run regularly throughout the day until... More

The caves offer 4 'tours'; 1 and 2 are relatively short 'walks' along steel catwalks and along well made cement trails. 3 and 4 include the 'standard' walks in as in 1 & 2, but also offer more adventure, sliding down (smooth) rocks, crawling and floating through passages in a shallow river and walking through narrow tunnels. We did #3... More

Spent my birthday exploring the cave. We took the complete tour with 5 children aged 8-14 years. The guide was experienced but it was a big group of more than 30 persons so it would have been better to split the groups. Parts of the cave required sliding down two slippery slopes and going down on all fours or quite... More
