Gua Tempurung is not really in Ipoh- it is wround 35km from Ipoh and will take you at least half an hour in a car, longer by other transport. But it is worth the visit. This is a massive cave system with some interesting formations and history. Your experience will depend on your guide, and their level of English, if... More

I made a dry tour through the cave and then walked there by myself to explore more. I would really recommend to go there! The best way to get there is obviously to rent a car or a motorbike, but I went there by bus. You have to take bus 66 from Ipoh Bus Station (near the Railway Station) and... More

If you never climb in a cave, it would be a great experience for you to visit Gua Tempurung. There are stairs access for visitors, suitable for all ages. You might need to wear a walking shoes and bring bottled water and towel as some areas are quite slippery. Even it was raining outside, we were sweating when walking continuously... More

Highly recommended wet tour! Really adventurous. A lot of Surprise is waiting you. Nothing more to say here about what is inside there, go experienced it by your own. But I have something to share. Don't afraid you get stuck in between the rocks or under the rock inside the cave, I am fat, but I went through. Beware your... More

Reasonably priced and worth a visit if you have your own car and are driving up north from KL. We didn't do the wet tour which you need more than a few hours for.

The caves are quiet interesting... Biggest in Malaysia.. And they have made stairs to make the caves accessible for tourists. Considering the length of the tour the fee is also not high. And as per the time you wish to spend, they have 4 kind of tours ( 2 wet and 2 dry). The only problem which we faced was... More

With the family we only did the dry tour that takes you into the cave and you hike back out on your own. The guide continued on with some others who were taking the wet tour. I did the wet tour on my own about 14 months prior to this and it was a lot more fun and adventurous.

This was BIG FUN! Did the long tour (number 4 it was, I think) which lasted for about 3,5 hours. First part is quite boring, its just another cave yet. But the part in complete darkness following the river outside and then walking back again was fantastic. The advertised huge jumps and chest deep water are quite a bit of... More
