Highlights
  • Take a no-hassle tour of the Batu Caves from Kuala Lumpur 
  • Let a guide bring the history of the Hindu shrines to life
  • Ideal first trip for travelers to orient themselves
  • Relax with round-trip coach transport to and from your hotel 
What to Expect
This tour begins with hotel pickup in Kuala Lumpur. If you’ve just arrived to the city, the scenic drive provides a good way to orient yourself. Arrive at the Batu Caves, limestone masses home to golden Hindu shrines and a plethora of grey macaques. Let your guide bring the Hindu history of the monument to life and ascend 272 steps to the statue of Lord Murugan. Following a tour of the Cathedral Cave, head to the Malaysian Batik Centre and Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre to further explore Malaysian culture by hearing about two of the country's most popular handicrafts.  Afterward, climb back onto your coach and return to your Kuala Lumpur hotel.

The trip started with a visit to a Pewter Factory which was initially quite interesting but then turned into soft sell shopping. Similar to the "batik" factory, which basically had two people painting and everyone else trying to sell stuff. Finally we got to the temple. The

Loved the colourful stairs and the other picture-worthy spots at this cave. It was a very hot day but I bought an ice cream from one of the ice cream bikes at the cave. The view from above was astounding, it made the climb up less tiring Ha ha..

Batu caves is a place to visit. However it is better to visit it early in the morning before it becomes too warm. Don't miss the Ramayan Cave. Prepare to spend at least 2 to 3 hours at Batu caves.
