Take note: Pee all you can before coming here, the public toilets are the filthiest I have ever been to! There was no water supply in the male toilet, yuck! Plus it charges 30cent per entry... Supposedly all tours come with a tour guide who speaks only Malay (if I remembered correctly, to have one who speaks English you have... More

Amazing view in the cave. Plenty of activities to choose from and guided by rangers. Need to wear a right attire such as shoes for climbing activities. Need to standby a towel and a torchlight.

The Grand Tour is by far the best and most challenging of all the tours available at Gua Tempurung. I have taken groups of people several times and they find it a memorable activity. However, there are safety issues - they allocate only 1 cave guide to a group as big as 30 people. There is no way one guide... More

Do tour no. 4. Just take a flashlight... You'll get really wet. Beware that you must arrive before noon which is the last departure for tours nos. 3 and 4. Opens at 9 a.m. and takes about an hour to get to from Ipoh. You can take public bus no. 66 and then a taxi. Ask at your hotel for... More

The 40 minute tour literally lasted 15 minutes and we didn't see much. The 1 hour 30mins tour must have been about 25mins for us. It's a beautiful cave and first timers and newbie's would love it. Easy Climb as well for all ages. However, there are much nicer caves. Specially in Mulu, Malaysia. The limestone is dead and the... More

Whats great is you can choose your route (wet or dry). The easiest level route... More

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
