What You Can Expect

Batu Caves and Temple Tour from Kuala Lumpur

Monkey at Batu Cave

After pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, embark on your cultural exploration of Malaysia beginning with a short drive through this region's official Little India in Brickfields. What used to be a simple residential neighborhood just outside of Kuala Lumpur has now been transformed into a colorful community with streets lined with quaint shops and mom-and-pop restaurants.

A short 30 minute drive later, arrive at Batu Caves, a massive limestone outcrop with interiors housing a Hindu shrine lined with different deities. Before climbing up the 272 steps up into the high caverns, marvel at the impressive golden structure of Lord Murugan, standing tall at 140 feet (42.7 m). On the way up, be greeted by mischievous furry little monkeys!

Upon arrival at the top of the steps, enter the Cathedral Cave, the biggest cave of the complex featuring a high ceiling and ornate Hindu shrines. Explore the cave complex with your guide and learn about the history and cultural significance of its various features.

Before returning to your hotel, make a stop at a local Malaysian Batik center and discover how this popular Malaysian fabric is designed and printed.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Had a great day and our driver was excellent. There were only 4 of us and our guide explained everything. It was a long climb, but we did it slowly and it was wirth the effort. There were lots of monkeys in the cave so beware if you are carrying water bottles or food as they will take them! They were very amusing though. We also stopped at Little India and it was fascinating to watch them making flower garlands. There was also a stop at a batik factory, but beware this is a money making excercise, and very expensive, although I did buy a sarong.

Very good trip out and again our guide was interesting whilst giving us sufficient time to wander on our own.
