    Interesting Awesome caves
    This is a must-see if you are visiting Malaysia. The climb up is a bit tedious and not for those with weak knees. Once at the top, you are amazed to be inside the huge cave where they had built temples inside. It will be helpful if the management built a kind of cable car that the aged and the disabled might be able to use to get up to the top.

    It's Amazing
    When you visit Kuala you have to do this adventure, there 2 part, while you going up you can stop in the middle to see the Chines temple to know some of Chines history and ancient civilisation, then you can take the car again to highest point you'll find too much activity you can do it there specially, if your children with you. You need full day to finish.

    Naturally beautiful caves with Hindu-style Disney-esque themes. Very odd.
    We did the pewter factory (see separate review of that plus the Foundry) and skipped the batik to get more time at the caves. The driver, Mohammed Fazil, was wonderful. Private, new aircon car, and he was accommodating to whatever we wanted to do, as all elements are free to enter. The caves are naturally huge & beautiful that have had Hindu temples (very colorful; loud music) erected in them. While respecting the meaning for Hindu people, I would have preferred a natural cave environment, and found the combination an unpleasant clash. From a practical perspective, there are 272 stairs to traverse alongside monkeys that can be somewhat aggressive, so you're advised not to take anything with you. The stairs are uneven, there are no handrails but there are walls you can hold on to. The monkeys climb all over them, so I'd wished I'd had clean wipes or sanitizer for my hands. Once inside, there are no facilities but a water hose to wash hands. You need to take off your shoes before entering the temple, which isn't the same as a Chinese or Japanese temple, and I didn't find it worth going barefoot or getting socks wet. There are more stairs down then up again to get to another temple that blares Hindi music. Back down the stairs outside, there are a couple other caves to explore. On the far left as you look at the gold statue is one that costs RM5, and although naturally beautiful, has had a series of scenes set up depicting Hindu gods and godesses almost like an alternative Disneyland without the animatronics. Frankly, to this westerner, it was unpleasant, gaudy to the extreme, and hard to find any sense of serenity. I heavily cropped selected pictures to get just a flavor of the temples. In real life, the temples were a mix of colors that completely clashed with the natural cave surroundings.

    Expert guide and a private tour
    The tour guide (Rajan) was excellent. He was friendly courteous, knowledgable and willing to be flexible with the planned schedule. I would suggest that the service can be improved by providing car details (type/number) beforehand.

    Incredible
    We went on a very humid day and it was hard work walking up all the steps. Great sight once we reached the top, huge cave, full of monks and statues. Giant gold statue at front looked very impressive.

    A day of learning and culture
    Today we were picked up by our lovely driver and guide Maran who took us around for our half day tour. He was full of knowledge, pointing out places of interest, explaining the culture and answering our questions. He even stopped off to show us some rubber trees and how you get the latex off the tree. He cut into a pod to show us a rubber tree seed and it was really fascinating. The Royal Selangor Pewter factory was a lot more interesting than we thought it was going to be and the hand painted fabric place was also quite fascinating. We really enjoyed the Batu Caves and Temple with all the monkeys and views and even saw a little snake on the steps. Maran was an excellent guide and had very good knowledge. He was friendly and reliable and explained everything really well. I can highly recommend this tour and Maran (seen in the picture below).
