Malaysia Caves

Malaysia Tourism & Travel Information

 

Gua Tempurung in Gopeng, Perak about 25 km south of Ipoh, an old bandit hideout in more recent days, conceals an intricate system of caves honeycombed inside the limestone hills. Explore a
gallery of stalagmites and stalactites and other amazing rock formations which are superb geological wonders. In the middle of this cave there is a stalagmite over 2 million years old. The "Giant", as the stalagmite is called, points high into the cave, and even the ceiling of the cave is majestic.  Shine your flashlight into the underground river and enjoy the brilliant reflections like stars in the night sky. Become transfixed as if transported to some other place in the universe. 

Mulu Caves in Sarawak is honeycombed by the world's most extensive cave system. 310 kilometres of passages have been surveyed and that is only a third of what is believed to exist. The system includes the world's largest natural chamber, Sarawak Chamber at 600 metres long, 450 metres wide and 100 metres high, is capable of holding London's St. Paul's Cathedral, the world's largest cave passage, Deer Cave, and the longest cave in Southeast Asia, Clearwater Cave, which runs for 108 kilometres and has never been traversed from end to end. Most visitors go to Deer Cave at sunset to watch a black river of three million bats pour out on their nightly forage for insects.

The Caves of Fairies & Winds are about 8 KM from Bau town, located on the Mount Kapur in Sarawak. The entrance of the cave is about 36 meters above the base of the cliff. A concrete staircase of over 100 steps will lead you to the entrance of the cave. The beautiful view that you can see, up from the entrance of the Cave of Fairies of the valley below, with its forest and fields is a wonderful relief after the climb. From the entrance, a wooden staircase will lead you to the
Chambers of the Caves of Fairies. Don't hold your breath when you see the extremely human like stalagmites and stalactites, or feel the presence of fairies!  Nearby is the Wind Cave where stairs and plank walks lead to the main cave and two underground tunnels. A continuous breeze surge through the tunnels, giving the cave its name.
