    About 20 mins from Kuantan, but the last few km is passing through palm oil plantation with gravel roads. There are many cows and monkey along the roads, so drive carefully. It's quite interesting lan...  more »

    One of the best limestone cave in this area. Magnificent. Entry RM2. There are two route once you finish the iron staircase. The right path takes you to the sleeping buddha. Which is deep into the cave. The left one take you to a higher cave that sunlight can shine through. The left path is better as the view is more magnificent while the right path is darker

    Visited on 1/8/2017. Need to go off road for this place not much signage but Waze could just bring you in easily. The view from far is nice and tempting to give it a go. Parking fee is RM3. Entry donation of RM2 per pax is compulsory. Need to climb more than 100 steps of uneven stairs to reach the cave entrance. Entrance is nice and windy. Good place to chill after the ascend. The cave is under construction so the view down into the cave is messy. The cave walls has been scribbled badly which are unpleasant to look at. Very disappointed that the cave is not properly taken care of. No proper signage of the rocks which resembles something. So we were walking cluelessly. If you are here for prayers then this is maybe a place for you. Else, if you are here for sight seeing, then it is a no. The view from the outside is beautiful enough. The view in the inside tainted our impression of the beautiful cave on the outside.

    Nice place for devotees of Lord Shiva. No proper roads. But the place is beautiful. More to nature.

    Very big cave with some Indian God statues, RM2 for climbing up. Not bad a climb

    Very big cave. Must visit between 11am-12pm. Sun light will shine through a hole and lights up the Sleeping Buddha Statue
