A short distant from the city outskirt is Batu Caves – a massive limestone outcrop with its interior dominated by a sacred Hindu shrine lined with different deities, located deep inside the high caverns which take 272 steps to reach. Outside the caves, marvel at the 43 metres high golden statue of Lord Murugan. Tour also include a visit to a traditional Malaysian Batik Centre to see how Batik is printed or hand-drawn using wax and dye, and Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre to witness the making of pewterware – Malaysian’s most distinctive craft.

Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.
After pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, embark on your cultural exploration of Malaysia. 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 the 272 steps up into the high caverns, marvel at the impressive golden structure of Lord Murugan, standing tall at 140 feet (43 meters). On the way up, be greeted by mischievous 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. Then make a stop at a local batik center and discover how this popular Malaysian fabric is designed and printed. Before returning to your hotel, visit the Royal Selangor Visitor Center to gain insight on pewter smithing and innovative pewter-ware design.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
Your bus picked me up at my hotel despite last minute booking, the guide was friendly and helpful and bus air conditioned. When we made it to Batu caves we were given time to explore on our own.
Great tour, picked up from our hotel taken to the caves and you have plenty of time to wonder yourself, would be nice to have a guide inside to explain a few things but I don’t think that’s what they do here. But still enjoyed it all the same. We visited a Nice textile shop afterwards too.
A beautiful and historic destination. Keep an eye on your belongings with the monkeys around. The monkeys are seemingly far more aware and intelligent than many of the people who visit. I knew Charles Darwin was right.
Fabulous tour, punctual pick up, Caves are well worth seeing if in KL and makes a great half day out away from the city. Lots of steps to climb and can get very hot, we went late afternoon when it was more pleasant. Really pleased we also had the chance to visit the Royal Selangor pewter factory on the way to the Caves which was absolutely amazing
Sights were amazing and the guide and driver were great.
Our tour guide was amazing! We loved this tour
Well organised tour pick up on time .Good guide & driver, Saravanan , who was knowledgeable , friendly and effecient.
Drove us well, and gave proper guidance and information. Brought us back to town in time
Professional and very well organised. The driver Tiru was pretty good. He customised the trip as per my requirements and was very professional.
Dennis was a fantastic guide and showed us the best places to visit and try great food.
Our tour guide was very informative with a great sense of humour. We were picked up on time and had a quick driving tour of Little India and the surrounding area. The Batu Caves were very enjoyable, as were the cheeky monkeys. Make sure you wear longer pants or a long skirt/dress otherwise you will need to pay for a sarong to cover your legs it doesn't cost much
We visited a textile factory on the way home - could have missed this one, it was just a trap to get the tourists to spend money. Also visited the Selangor Pewter Factory - the tour was very informative.
The only down side was the trip home - straight into grid locked traffic in KL!!! It took 20 minutes to get the Caves and greater than 2 hours to get back to our Hotel. We sat in the van for 20 minutes looking across the road at our Hotel while our driver was unable to do a U turn due to the congestion on the road. It might be better to choose the morning tour so you miss the gridlocked traffic in the afternoon.
