I came with group of friend and a guide from Riverbug. My journey inside the cave take 3 hours (full course) and make me wet. There are proper pathway to the cave and inside the cave. Some place inside the cave equipped with lights on the wall (not that very bright). You need to bring a torch light and preferably... More

2 types of exploration are available 1) visit the cave only with guide explaining the special features of the cave. Very very nice and weather inside is the best compare to outside hit and humid. 2) for the adventure one, this one will need you to come with extra shirts and shorts as you will get wet. You enter the... More

This place is quite an eye opener for my city life children aged 10 and 11. There are proper paths to the cave and all with lights. Don't expect bright LED light type, it will be dim light everywhere for visitors to observe lime stone formation. The staircases up to the cave are quite steep and may not suitable for... More

On our way back to KL from Ipoh, we decided to stop at The Gua Tempurung (Tempurung Caves) to check it out. It was a bit of a drive from the highway but signboards are a plenty. There are a few tours you can choose from; some being wet, some being dry. Since we weren't really dressed for splunking (we... More

Without any expectations, I was amazed by the beauty and the size of this cave. We paid for the easiest journey because we have seniors and a kid. I was curious for the whole trip but it was hot and humid in the cave. Anyway, it's worthwhile for a visit in Ipoh.

The caves are incredibly beautiful but we could do without the litter. There are bins everywhere though sadly some people don't bother to use them. There were empty water bottles and potato chip packets at the entrance which made for an ugly first impression. The attraction is magnificent and worth the 45 minute walk to the end and back.

the caves used to be beautiful but now the stalactite and stalagmite formations looks dull and black! We can't go to level 3 and 4 because it's less than 8 people so we took the level 2. It is very hot and humid inside the cave. Glad we didn't go by guided rangers, due to the heat I would be... More

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.
