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.

it reminded me of something out of an Indiana Jones movie. inside the cave, it opened up to this massive great room that looked like a natural cathedral. very impressive. there are not enough professional pix taken of this cavern .....and that's a shame. they have one tour that takes you to the top of the cavern by stairs and...

I went for the tour 4 (Highest level) and it was awesome! I would strongly encourage/advise to wear long pants (stretchable) and probably a pair of gloves. This is because you would have to slide down big rocks and do some climbing. Overall, it was fun and enjoyable, though we experienced sore shoulders the day after! :D

Gua Tempurong is a show cave & offers an easy introduction to wannabe cave explorers. The cave is located just off the North South highway at the Gopeng exit. To reach the cave, turn left after the North South highway , drive slowly & look for a small sign on the left side of the old Ipoh trunk road. The... More

It's a nice place to visit and explore. The cave is huge and awe-inspiring. Since we were travelling with children we chose Top of the World tour which does not involve much walking. The Grand Tour is more thrilling/exciting and gives a true experience of spelunking! Its also called the wet tour! Sadly,the tour guide spoke in Malay and we... More

The grand tour (tour 4 or wet tour) was great fun. There was quite some trash (old water bottles, shoe parts, flashlight parts) in the cave, but besides that you can find bats, cave spiders, cave cockroaches and great stone formations in there! You should absolutely do this tour if you are up for an adventure! Better bring a water... More

Been there on 27th July 2014 with my boyfriend, just one day before Hari Raya Holiday. We went for the Grand Tour (Package 4), which includes everything til the end of the cave. There was about 60 people in my group with only one tour guide. And guess what, he spoke Malay language throughout the journey. There are some China... More

We arrived in a group of 9 people but joined many others in a large group. We went for the Grand Tour which would take at least 3 and half hours. Like many things in Malaysia, Gua Tempurung is one of the great wonders of nature to be appreciated but a very obvious lack of effort and dedication to promote... More
