  • The place looks quite poor maintained (probably they are not getting support from state government, it looks like the place is support only by local donation). Hopefully state tourism can help them to maintain well this tourism spot
  • Full of mysterious cave. At the cave entrance there's another staircase on the left, is leading to the second cave. Dont miss it.
  • Formed 400 million years ago and carved by nature, the cave hosts 30ft long statue of reclining Buddha. Around 11.40am, the sun light from a hole located at the top of the cave will touch the head of Buddha.
  • It's indeed a nice cave, however it's quite poorly maintained, plenty of unwanted stuffs including furnitures, and bits of rubbish here and there. Parking charges for a car is RM3 and entrance RM2 per head. Parts of the staircase are rather unsafe, try not to bring your kids there. Not very attractive, but if you have free time to spend, can check out the place.
  • Nice caves and it is very fun to climb up here. Don't bring kids, not easy to safeguard them to walk all these stairs.
