The Batu Caves were a great half day trip for us. I was surprised to find that the attraction was free too all! It is a tourist season right now and I'm happy to say it wasn't too busy. Tips for people heading there: wear comfortable shoes as there are many steps and don't take a bag of food as... More

My fiancé and I visited the caves and enjoyed the naughty little monkeys running around stealing everyone's food. Our guide told us not to bring anything up or even try to feed the monkey, so we listened unlike the other people we were laughing at as we saw the monkeys scrambling around the food they had with them. The hike... More

A must visit place even if you dont follow the Hindu religion. The place has 2 large caves. The main one in which need to climb about 300+ steps, the other is on ground. Very neatly maintained. Has a lot of mythology depicted inside the caves. Has few temples in the complex as well. Good place overall. The drive out... More

Interesting to view the temples as places of Hindu Worship. A good set of legs are needed for the stairs, all 257 of them, and we were happy to find water being sold at the top of our climb!

When my taxi driver told me that I had to climb 272 steps to get to the Temple, I looked for every excuse, my age, my physical fitness, my arthritis to chicken out of the climb. I even said that God doesn't need me to bring my sins all that way. However, when I saw the Golden statue in front... More

We took the Batu Caves KTM here from KL Central. - Just right outside the train station - The statue of Lord Murugan is grand with the huge limestone landscape at the backdrop - Stairs are a bit narrow, but no an issue. Just walk up slowly and enjoy the view - Air is much cooler when you reach the... More

We arrived and there were loads of visitors, but because many travel at a different pace the walk up the steep stairs isn't very crowded. Amazing natural wonder the caves. Watching the spiritual activities very cool. My wife was attacked by a monkey, that was poor form from the monkey. We left after that...
