The caves are a short Uber ride away from the centre of KL and well worth the visit. The large hindu god that guards the cave is quite remarkable. We climbed 272 stairs to reach the 3 limestone caves where there are a few shrines. There are a large number of monkeys in these caves so be aware when eating... More

Amazing experience. Should go and visit. We got a taxi from our hotel that took us there and back. The taxi waited for us there and gave us time to have a look around. Don't take any food with you or have it visible or the monkeys will come and grab it from you. There are a lot of steps... More

We heard a lot of mixed feedback on Batu Caves so almost didn't go,so glad we didn't listen!although busy it wasn't cahos or madness, found it quite clean all things considering and if you mind your own business the monkeys are not an issue at all. Beautifull setting for a temple,amazing place definitely worth a visit. Ladies remember to wear... More

A local guy recommended going, (in the morning as the temperature was lower then) and we were quite happy we did. Although it's a tourist attraction it hasn't lost its cave-atmosphere (neither is it shining clean). It's a really nice view after walking all the stairs, and there is more to explore when leaving again. We wished we had gone... More

Some 20 years ago I drove to the Batu Caves, and the prospect of the 272 steps up (the number seems to vary; do they count the steps to leave the RMT station?) didn't daunt me. For anyone sufficiently able-bodied to climb steps, it's a very economical trip from KL into Selangor - the ticket we bought from KL Sentral... More

We made a visit to the caves recently. It was quite a nice day and the climb up the 272 steps was easily done. There were no monkeys around that day or maybe they have been cleared away. There was a lot of construction inside the cave and temples there are being restored. We were disappointed as the temples were... More

We climbed these 272 stairs in +34 degree heat and sweat our butts off and it was totally worth it. The view from up top, the cheeky monkeys and the caves themselves are really worth a visit. It is not earth-shattering - but it is something that you must see - where else are you going to see anything like... More

We visited this place early morning to try and beat the heat and crowds...was hot as ever and there were plenty of crowds. I don't think you can avoid these to things no matter what time you go! Make sure you take comfy shoes as you will be walking up and down a lot of stairs. Only visit here if... More
