While the temple was beautiful, carved out of rocks and several paintings. The most memorable part was the tiring climb. This was a food trip to ipoh. So, with all of us stuffed to the neck, it was terribly difficult. Anyhow, for the bit of workout and also to see a beautiful temple. The trip/drive down to here is worth.

I went to Perak Tong during a weekend trip to Ipoh, and it was one of my favorite attractions in the area. Every aspect of the temple is incredible. If I return to Ipoh I will definitely come back to visit Perak Tong again. The cave temple itself is amazing; the cave is very large and has interesting rock formations,... More

It is an easy accessible location because it is located just off the main road where busses stops. It is just a hop away from the busy tasek road. They path is well used by tourist and local visitors alike.

Perak cave is one of the highest cave in Ipoh and quite a good place to capture picture. Anyhow, it requires us to climb up a lot to see the attractive scene and view of Ipoh, thus it is not really suitable for those elderly people.

Visited this Temple many times. This was the 1st time climbed all the way to the top. Tiring experience, but the effort was worth it. You could see the panorama view of Ipoh. Climbing down was another experience cos of the steep staircases.

Natural and Beautiful. But you need to climbing before you can see the wonderful view. Not suitable to old or sick people. The air is cool inside the cave and nice to walk around .

Perak cave is one of the few caves around Ipoh but is the most well preserved & converted into a Taoism temple i.e with deity's statues & written history of it. The air is cool inside hence nice to walk around and ponder. There is a small Chinese design rest hut built on top of the cave ( can assess... More

Wonderful view of the city after climbing tons of steps, not for lazy or couchpotatoes but totally worth the climb.
