Overview

Gua Tempurung cave is the largest limestone cave in peninsular Malaysia, following an underground river deep into the hillside. Explore the system with a cave ranger on a full-day trip from Penang that includes door-to-door transport and lunch at a local restaurant.
  • 7-hour Gua Tempurung tour from Penang
  • 2-hour guided cave tour
  • Lunch included
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Family friendly
Begin with pickup from your city or beach hotel in Penang, and take in views of the countryside on the 2-hour drive to Gua Tempurung. Meet a nature guide for a briefing on cave travel, then enter Gua Tempurung for a 2-hour guided tour.

Follow walkways through large chambers hung with stalactites, passing bristling stalagmites on the cave floor. Find rock formations illuminated by electric lighting, and listen for the fluttering sounds of the bats that nest in the cave system. Slip through narrow entrances, then watch the cave walls open up into soaring, water-carved domes—Tempurung means ‘coconut,’ and the cave is named for the coconut-shaped domes that cap several of the cave chambers.

Return to the surface for lunch at a nearby restaurant before making the return trip to Penang. If time permits, pause to snap photos of the sultan’s palaces at Kuala Kangsar. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

We were aware that the caves were two hours away. That was OK. Our driver was driving a little too fast at times for our liking. When we got to the caves and the tickets were purchased, there was a bit of confusion. We went with a group of others where the guide spoke their language not english, they were laughing alot, we had no idea.The caves were very big and a huge amount of stairs. Lunch was nice, the car ride back was a little scary, It was OK, not really worth four hours travelling to see them.
