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

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.
