Just 40 minutes from Kuala Lumpur, this Batu Caves day trip takes in some of the most famous sanctuaries in Malaysia in one unmissable excursion.
Batu Caves Day Trip
Having picked you up at your hotel in Kuala Lumpur, we begin our day trip heading to a pewter workshop. This material, made of copper, tin and lead, is a flexible material by which craftsmen for hundreds of years have used to make products limited only by the human imagination. You can, for example, see the largest pewter beer jug in the world.
Then, having visited the workshop, we continue our route, taking in one of the most spectacular sights in all Malaysia, the Batu Caves. High on a sacred hill sit this series of grottoes and galleries: the most famous Hindu sanctuary outside India.
To reach the interior of the caves, you'll have to climb 272 steps: but this effort is worth it, with the caves themselves lined with sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses, each one stunning in its careful ornamentation.
Then, as we descend again we'll learn about the story of the great Murugan golden statue. This colossal sculpture of the god of war and victory, 42 metres high, bears a miraculous story, constructed as it was upon hilly terrain. A marvel in itself!
Then, with the guided tour of the Batu Caves over, the tour returns to Kuala Lumpur.
The ascent up the 272 steps up to the Batu Caves is not recommended for those with poor physical condition or who get easily out of breath.
All of our providers comply with local legislation and applicable health recommendations regarding protective material and safety to help avoid the spread of Covid-19.
