Huge Budda and 272 Stairs
The trip started with a visit to a Pewter Factory which was initially quite interesting but then turned into soft sell shopping.

Similar to the "batik" factory, which basically had two people painting and everyone else trying to sell stuff.

Finally we got to the temple.

The Budda was huge and the coloured stairs looked good from a distance. Easier to walk up than we thought despite the temperate which was over 30°.

The actual cave was enormous but the Temples inside were less impressive.

Still worth a visit as nowhere else is like this.

Loved the colourful stairs and the other picture-worthy spots at this cave. It was a very hot day but I bought an ice cream from one of the ice cream bikes at the cave. The view from above was astounding, it made the climb up less tiring Ha ha..

This is a must!!! Just Amazing....
Nov 2019
We got there early and were able to enjoy not only the main Cave, but the otherones as well. You want to make sure that if you are a female you are approprietly dressed. That means cover your knees and your shoulders, be respectful of their culture and you will enjoy every minute of it.Highly recomended.

Visit to Batu Caves, KL

Batu caves is a place to visit. However it is better to visit it early in the morning before it becomes too warm. Don't miss the Ramayan Cave. Prepare to spend at least 2 to 3 hours at Batu caves.

We took the hop on hop off bus to the caves, really enjoyed the open top bus ride. Best part of the trip! Steps very impressive to look at. Hundreds of pigeons everywhere. A few shops and stalls when you get off the bus. Ladies have to pay to hire a sarong if wearing shorts or a skirt, It was a great achievement climbing the stairs but rather disappointing when we reached the top. A few more shops at the top. 76 More stairs to climb once inside the caves. A few temples inside that you have to pay to go inside. The cave itself was impressive but small. The monkeys were the highlight

Slightly underwhelmed

Took the train from KL Central, took about half an hour, the statue and the steps looked very impressive, but once you entered the caves inside was a bit of a disappointment, a few small shrines inside were not overly impressive,

Caves interesting
It was good to see the caves, but you don't get to see much else. You get a trip to a pewter factory which was interesting. The driver/guide was helpful and informative.
