The small town of Gopeng, which is about 45 minutes away from the city center of Ipoh, has a beautiful limestone cave called the Gua Tempurung where our journey will start from. As we enter through the walkway on wooden stilts over the river, you will see layers of white marble stone slabs. Walking deeper into the dim-lighted showcase gallery, you will be strucked by the beauty of the Golden Flowstone, a 90 metre water slope on the wall of the cave illuminated by gentle light. Then we will proceed to climb 640 steps on platform 5 called the Top of the World, where we will walk through the Wind Tunnel, feeling the cool breeze as we enter the Giant Cavern. Coming through, we will reach the Tin Mining cavern where we can peek into the tin mining activities done in the old days. Then, we will enter the Universe Cavern, before coming across the Battlefield Cavern with an amazing view of formation that looks like fallen warriors! This exploration journey will take approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. You will have lots of fun walking through several caves and getting out to be greeted by the beautiful sight of the greenery outside.
Hello, I am Azizul. I am an armed forces personnel by the night and nature enthusiast by the day. Being trained in rain forest survival skills and first aids basics, I enjoy camping and hiking, and have been professionally involved in guided walk programs for the past 5 years. Currently I am running a hill hiking program as part of the ecotourism promotion in Ipoh. One of my life goals is to create nature loving awareness in other people's life and the limestone caves around Ipoh has so much to offer!

You will wade through 2km under the limestone hills of Gunung Tempurung, viewing 5 large domes showcasing its stalagtites, stalagmites and other amazing rock formations. By climbing up almost vertical walls and walking through the river water channels, the physical challenges will be worth it. At the end of the journey, you will be welcomed with a rainbow of colors from sunshine reflections off the cave walls.
Dress comfortably. For pants, try old khakis. Denim tends to constrict movement but its ok. Camera is optional. Torchlights and safety helmets are available for rent.
