The caves were simply breathtaking. We did a self guided tour and asides from the confusion buying a ticket (very cheap!) once we got going we were not disappointed. An absolute MUST DO if you are in the area. If you do the self guided walk there is no need to worry too much about what to wear. Just a... More

It's compared to the caves in Miri, but I think Gua Tepurong is better. Here I had my choice of tours (with guide) and the guide was very good. You're taken in with your guide and let to walk back out at your own pace. The cave is vast and huge and some of the things I saw made me... More

We decided to take a trip to this cave during the school holidays in December and surprisingly it was an unforgettable experience. The procedure was simple as we were immediately met at the counter by our guide, who spoke simple English who did all the explanation in the cave. It is advisable to either go early in the morning or... More

Gua Tempurung is the largest known limestone chamber in Peninsular Malaysia, easily accessible from Ipoh or by a 2hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. The ''top of the world tour'' is the one recommended as you get to see the whole chamber, but be prepared to tackle a lot of steps. Not recommended if you have mobility or health issues. Ticketing...

I had a very bad experience with TICKETING COUNTER staffs at around 12.20pm on 15/12/2014. There was no one at the counter and we thought they went for lunch or something else. *There were 3 staffs(ladies), sitting at a side and having their lunch. However, we waited in front of the counter for 5 minutes and a group of tourists... More

Went with the kids over the weekend, and this is surely an eye opener for them. A good education tour to the top of the cave, and see how these rock formation is formed hundred of years ago. Kids love it, and especially when leaving the cave, the water flowing down from the mountain is really cooling. A big surprise... More

We didn't have much time, and an older person with us, so we took the shorter dry tour of the caves, and it was still awesome. The cave is enormous inside, with hundreds of stairs to climb and sights to see. The guide was funny and interesting and made sure all members of our group were happy and safe. Definitely... More

Took the Long tour. 4 hours. Guide was average. Only spoke malay (fine by me) but luckily another person in group translated to Mandarin for a Singaporean family. Caverns are impressive. Prepare to get properly wet as your will involve crawling and walking in the river. Wear proper shoes and bring good flashligh . Headlamp preferred to keep hands free.... More

We didn't spend much time and climb to the highest because my boyfriend was very scared of the heights. But we were amazed by the scenery and it was quite chilly inside the cage. You can find interesting 'animal rocks' hidden somewhere in the cage. Too bad we didn't get to join the tour because it's fully booked.
