  • I took the level 4 tour (full cave). We arrived at 10:30am, and the last level 4 tour of the day was had just started. I would suggest this cave for a person seeking adventure, as it may disappoint you if you are expected a beautiful and we'll decorated cave. I would also not recommend going out of your way to travel here unless you are going to do the full tour, as the platform sections alone are not worth it.
  • Enjoy my experience during the tour! The guide is friendly and well-informed. Definitely would try other packages if I got spare time!
  • Had a great time visiting this cave (Gua Tempurung). The down side is that there is no guards on Tour 1 and Tour 2 check point, which mean someone paying for Tour 1 package is entering Tour 2 trail, this is unfair to whom paying for Tour 2 package (MyKad RM4 additional for adult). Over it is nice, well lid, clear path and walk ways for everyone to safely walk around.
  • Great tour. Wet as a fish but fun. Have to crawl in some places and get down on all four with occasional commando crawl. Stairs and platforms can be boring but it's part of the tour. Tour got interesting when we descended from the highest platform to the river and started the journey to the other end or rather the entrance of the river which faces the expressway though can's see it from outside. Even saw a python in the cave! There are 6 types of snakes in there and only the python is non-venomous but don't think they are that tame either. Guide caught it and released it outside as snakes in caves can be dangerous being attracted to torchlights since they can't see. Also saw bats and catfishes in the river. The river can get flooded so tours may not start if they anticipate rain upstream. Fortunately there's plenty of high ground in the cave but still not a good idea to be in the river if there's heavy rain upstream. Wet tour closes after 12pm so be sure to be there before that.
  • Nature at its best. Place well maintained and clean. Not recommended for elderly who have difficulty in walking and going up and down series of stairs, nevertheless they can still utilize the smallest package just to enter to the initial walkway to have a glance of the magnificent view. Variety of package choices available between wet and dry and adventure.
