With my greatest disappointment, Gua Tempurung by far is the WORST MANAGED tourist attractions here in Malaysia. Appointed by the Perak State Government since 2004, Gua Tempurung has been managed and maintained by APT Consortium Sdn Bhd, and the person in-changed is Pn. Sharifah. Without bragging too much, here are the contributing factors:  Taking the Tour 4 (Grand Tour)... More

Gua Tempurung or Tempurung Caves is about 2 hour from Kuala Lumpur. Access road is very good and the Gua was easily reached. The cave was very interesting and very well managed.

Some stairs but not too hard. It's 2 hours drive from KL. We went to the caves and a local temple. Most of us could do the walk but there are loads of stairs. An ok family adventure and something a little different.

This place is under visited (I selfishly hope so). It is really worth a visit and also easily accessible. The caves are well managed and maintained its natural aura with simple lighting (not the awful rainbow colour lights you see in other places). And it is much bigger than those temple caves around Ipoh. (largest cave in Pen Malaysia). There... More

I only did tour 2 during my visit to the cave. If ever I'm in the area again, I will definitely check out the 'wet' tours. Tour 2 only takes about an hour; certainly nowhere near 1h45min, as is claimed on flyers and signs outside of the cave. The cave itself is very impressive indeed. Sadly, the guide on my... More

Not as touristy as most other caves I've visited. Lighting in the later stages of the grand tour depends on your torch light. There is a great variety of ways the cave is explored, sometimes requiring you to be on your all-fours. Wear shoes with thicker soles because the floor is adorned with small and uneven rocks that can make... More

The smelly washroom with RM 0.30 per entry has deducted 1 star, otherwise 5 stars could have been rated :) Kindly join the Grand tour if you are physically healthy and in-love with adventure :) *Anti-slippery shoes able to make you enjoy more throughout your trip :) **Pay a little bit more and try their Flying-fox after the Grand tour,...

These large caves are well worth the effort to get to them, but you need to be in reasonable condition, able to tackle over 1200 steps for the walk to the back of the cave (Tour 2), and it is dimly lit, which is good in one way, but it is a fairly wet cave and the steps can be... More
