  • The oldest and biggest cave in Asia, thats what they said. When you enter into it you will feel they did not exaggerate it. I never imagined a cave can be this big. The roof is 120 metre high. The tra...  more »

  • I went with a friend. Grand was more than I expected. There are four courses, 40 minutes is the shortest. We participated in the second short course and was one time a little bit. Walk in the water are two other courses this course is not wet, but it is not. Friend of 60 years, slowly walk stairs no problem. Change is required because the sweat.

  • One of the best cave exploring experience you can find in this region. So much to see and some history too. Get an experienced guide to fill you in on your walk through. Have been here many years back before they built many of the amenities available now. Come properly attired if you want to get down and dirty crawling through the crevices. There are easy routes though for those who want to avoid getting dirty. Note: Please leave your phones behind. It won't work in there. Get a proper camera if you want photos ( I would leave it behind though. Chances are it will be in your way most times) And be ready to hold on tightly to your most important gadget - the torchlight! It can get pretty dark as in pitch black in there.
  • This cave was amazing! I did the whole 5 hour wet trip. All you need is a good head lamp, proper shoes with grip and long pants and long sleeves would help. It was a good experience! Will definitely recommend this trip if you don't mind the dark and small places! A good guide is always helpful.
  • My first caving experience that involved getting wet. The view in there are amazing. The stalactites and stalagmites are beautiful. We went for the wet tour. We had to slide down the cave, go through small hole one by one and crawled under the stalactites on the water. The experience were amazing. Recommend to wear long or 3/4 pants as you need to do some sliding and crawling on rocky surface. All in all, you have to try it!
  • When you’re in Ipoh.. this will be one you must visit! I went for the GT4 which is the grand tour 4 that u have to leopard crawl, climb, slide and cross the water inside the cave! It’s a 4hours with 3.8km, great way to see the cave from the other point of view. BUT please come prepare! Bring water, spare cloths and proper food wear! As got a couple of guys their footwear broke and leave them no footwear. Waterproof your phone! And try not to bring too much things. Overall great experience!
  • Amazing cave system. If you have a good guide, you'll get to see large chambers with clever lighting, and hopefully get to walk and crawl through the low river sections on the way out. Also some interesting history around the independence war with some balls plans drawn on the caves walls. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
