I went there with my 11months old kid. The guide told me he is probably the youngest to visit this place :) It was a wonderful 1hour adventure. Don't forget to wear proper shoes and take a flash light. If you are staying in felda residence, they can arrange a guide for you @ RM150 per group and you woud... More

if you are going to visit here, go with a guide. I am not sure if we saw everything but if we did, it was very disappointing.

I was very eager to visit the place as it holds many history. The place was practically abandoned. There was no one there when we went and the pathway was blocked, as the coat of cement looked pretty new. There was a board with no show of any fee. The whole place was deserted therefore with much disappointment my friend... More

My friends and I had some time on our hands as our return trip was in the early morning - so we opted for cave exploration to Gua Kota Gelanggi (a.k.a. Kota Gelanggi Cave) with NKS Travel. The route that our guide, Andrew took us was fun yet challenging. The cave itself is very big and has a few caves... More

A seldom visited located due to its distance. Hope that tour operators will make this place a stop after Taman Negara. We were ill equipped for the trip without proper shoes n light. We only managed to visit the last cave. It's a sad sight to see it being abandoned.... No worries.... Maybe it's better that way, keeping these 150... More

comparing this to gua tempurung, this is the dry version with more climbing and squeezing to do. Some damage on the crystal rock and the cave is well keep and smell free. Also no mosquito or any insect. The bat in this cave is called TIN TIN (Very cute little bat) and they are vegan! We started at 9.10am finishing... More

The caves are located about 20 km from Jerantut city centre. The road access to the location unfortunately is not clearly shown by any road sign and the location reported from Google Map is also way off. We had to asked around the locals to find the place. Once arriving there, the place seemed to be deserted, but still there... More
