With the family we only did the dry tour that takes you into the cave and you hike back out on your own. The guide continued on with some others who were taking the wet tour. I did the wet tour on my own about 14 months prior to this and it was a lot more fun and adventurous.

This was BIG FUN! Did the long tour (number 4 it was, I think) which lasted for about 3,5 hours. First part is quite boring, its just another cave yet. But the part in complete darkness following the river outside and then walking back again was fantastic. The advertised huge jumps and chest deep water are quite a bit of... More

Went for the first time with my wife, and 2 kids aged 11 & 9. We opted for route 3, which bills itself as 2 1/2 hours of dry and wet caving. In the end it was over 3. We were in a guided group of 40, which initially worried us, as we thought it would be too many. But... More

Came here for the afternoon to see the cave. Can get a bus here but involves a fair amount of walking and waiting around. We got a cab for 35RM so fairly cheap. And staff at the cave can call you one back if you do not want to pay for it to wait. The cave is huuuuge. You can... More

Asked a staff at information counter and was told that they will start maybe 9.30am or 9.45am. And anyway we do not have sufficient number of people for tour 2 (top of... More

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...
