Expedition at Gua Tempurung, Gopeng, Perak

16 September 2011 is a very meaningful day for Sabah, Sarawak and Malaysia. Now this date will also be a very unforgettable date for me because I have a chance to go for expedition at Gua Tempurung with my good friends at STMicroelectronic including my girlfriend, June june.


Gua Tempurung is a cave in Gopeng, Perak, Malaysia. It is popular among spelunkers, or caving enthusiasts. More than 3 km long, it is one of the longest caves in Peninsula Malaysia. Part of it has been developed as a show cave with electric lighting and walkways and there are a range of tours of different lengths and difficulty. A fine river cave, the river passage runs about 1.6 km through the hill. There are three very large chambers and some spectacular stalactites and stalagmites.


We took the Wet Tour 3(Top Of The World and Short River Adventure) which will cover the Golden Flowstone and Top Of The World after which you will be guided back to the entrance using the underground river. Be prepared to get wet as you walk along the cold and crystal clear river. Total duration needed for the entire tour is 2 hours and30 minutes. This package costs us RM11 per person.

There are a lot of beautiful and natural creatures inside Gua Tempurung. However since my camera is only Sony but not DSLR, it is very hard for me to take nice photo inside there. Therefore I suggested if you go to Gua Tempurung, bring along your DSLR you will never regret for that. Use your imigination for the pictures below !!!!!

You can see Osama, beautiful girl, buttock ......... inside Gua Temprung. Please go to see your own.

There is one special place inside Gua Tempurung, it is known as Air-cond room (picture above). Why it is known as air-cond room ? You can find this answer inside Gua Tempruung.



There is one location which we need to slide down from the top. The sliding angle is around eighty degree. Look like very scary but basically very fun..... I love this sliding place.




After passing through the sliding location, there is one small hole here and we need to go down by step on the tour guide's leg. How pity is the tour guide that everyday need to step by 100 persons from thin to fat people.




In Gua tempurung here, you have the chance to be soldier as well. Haha... Look picture above.



After 2 hour 30 minutes walking, climbing, sliding......., finally we reach the destinations. We are totally exhausted and tired but we were very happy with these all things.


Gua Tempurung we will come back to you again.


At the end, Good bye for my badminton shoe after Gua Tempurung Trip.

Hi there!

I'm a random stranger who happen to stumble across your blog cos I have intentions of visiting Gua Tempurung.

Would like to ask if there are alternative routes in the cave for people who aren't exactly slim... haha. cos I have a friend who is about 90kg and 1.64m tall. I look forward to your reply!

Hi,

There are 4 routes u may choose to go. The easy and the cheap one is the first one but it only take around 30 hours but looking the scenery inside. So i suggest u to get more difficult and wet one. It really not a difficult and it will to be unforgetable thing for u in future.
