Gua Tempurung cave

IMG 2548


The cave at Gua Tempurung, Gopeng, is one of the longest caves in Peninsula Malaysia, at more than 3km long. You can chose to take a dry tour or a wet tour, with two durations for each (contact 014 220 4142 for information). We chose the 1h 45min dry tour called ‘Top of the World’ and I can thoroughly recommend this. The cave is stunningly beautiful and its effect on you is hard to demonstrate in a photo. There are no fancy coloured lights in the cave, but just enough lighting to help you negotiate the steps and wonder in Nature itself.

Hanis’s phone camera worked much better in these low light conditions than my camera. So, here is a photo of Faris,  Farah, Sofi and Faizal, plus him and me!
