272 steps, massive caves, monkeys, historic, meaningful, Tip, wear pants over your knees. It's pretty steep and very touristic. Great photo opportunity, get yourself a fresh coconut. It's free and you can leave a donation, up the steps for more steps then up the final steps with a massive hole directly above letting through natural light.

Just so close to the city and amazing place. The statue in the entrance will make you give a big breath away! The monkeys all around will give you the opportunity to play with them and for sure walk up the stairs and fell the vibes of the place. Don't miss it!

This place should be shut down or closed for investigation as we found two LARGE BED BUGS! The staff were not friendly and just stared at us when we checked in. They were not helpful with anything and when they gave us the key to our room they pointed down the hallway. It smelt like mold/mildew and was very dingy,...

Its really beautiful, the way the nature has formed the Caves. Although I believe it could be more beautiful if they worked a bit more on the grounds in the Caves. Maybe some more trashbins? People seem to drop trash everywhere. Although would recommend to see if in Kuala Lumpur.

I am not Hindu so maybe the cave offered some religious significance I could not appreciate but the temple on the inside wasn't all that much to look at. The cave itself was pretty cool to look though to the trees above and the walk up the 300+ stairs wasn't too bad since you're accompanied by some monkeys!

What a day! we spent about two hours there . I've never seen anything like this. The walk up in the heat was not easy , but there are plenty of flat areas to rest , and in the heat I suggest you do rest as much as you can . The caves were great at the top. On the...

I liked it. It was different from what I have seen before. It took me an hour by train. Beware of the monkeys. They are crazy. Some of they will get violent over the food. So I recommend to keep a save distance, but overall worth the visit. PS it was kind of dirty.

Very interesting place with a nice view of the city once you get to the top. It's about 18km from KLCC. You can take train from there and then a transfer. It will cost you about 18-20 RM for two People round trip which is very cheap. Take the pink train from KLCC to KL central, from there you have...

This place was worth a visit for sure. You can take the train there and don't need to sign up for a tour group. It's free and it's got a lot of cool statues and things to look at. There are a lot of stairs to walk up so be warned- it is totally doable, babies were doing it, however...
