Here is the list of 6 Amazing Natural Caves in Malaysia for an Enticing Vacation

1. Gua Tempurung, Perak

A beautiful limestone cave which offers caving enthusiasts a wonderful opportunity to explore, the Gua Tempurung, located in Gopeng in Perak s the largest cave in all of peninsular Malaysia. A part of this 3-kilometer long cave has been developed as a show cave, complete with walkways and electric lighting. This river cave is quite easy to explore and has a 1.6-kilometer-long river passage running through the hills.

2. Gua Charas, Pahang

The Gua Charas is a limestone cave that was formed millions and millions of years ago, and holds great religious importance for Hindu as well as Buddhist devotees. This temple cave is located inside a limestone hill known as Bukit Charas, and is located around 25 kilometers to the northwest of Kuantan in Pahang. The 400 million-year-old granite and limestone massif reaches 355 meters in height, and is dotted with the symbols and statues of the devotees.

3. Sarawak Wind Cave

A short drive from Fairy Cave is the Sarawak Wind Cave. It stands on the banks of River Sarawak and strikes visitors with stalactites and stalagmites formed over the centuries. Both of these caves are very different from one another and can be covered in a half-day trip. Wind Cave has three unlit tunnels and the interior is pitch dark. Unlike Fairy Cave, the car can be parked right at the entrance of the Wind Cave. 

4. Fairy Cave, Kuching

In order to reach the Fairy Cave entrance, visitors have to climb a four-storey staircase made from concrete. From the entrance, the cave looks dark and spooky with abundant greenery everywhere. The winding wooden stairs leads inside the cave. Make way through the steep and slippery steps into the main chamber with a huge opening that allows sunlight to burst in.
