“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

I've been into the tunnel and it's an amazing experience. And it gets me wondering how 'torturous' the life of those miners have been. Explore it with your own eyes.

“Not quite there yet”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Its actually a very very facinating place to see. I mean the fact that its a hundred years old mines, a real one realy put it up my radar to visit. But unfortunately the place looks somewhat deserted.
When I was there, there are just a few other tourist joining me for the tour. The entrance fee is 15MYR for adult which on that time the opening promotion is still going. The actual fee is 30MYR. I dont know if I am willing to pay that much for just a brief walk in the old mines.
But the tour they provide is informative. Like how mining is done. Whos doing it. And why its abandoned now. You can go if theres plenty of time on your schedule.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

My friends and I drove from Singapore to Kuantan during a weekend trip. Finding the mountain was hard as there were no signs; you have to ask the locals for directions. Furthermore, you require a 4wd to go up, we didn't want to force it with our Altis.

The museum was pretty easy to find but we gave it a miss and went to the mines instead. The mines are located beside the museum up the hill. It was an interesting visit like other reviewers have mentioned. You can wear a cap as the mines has water dripping all over the place.

Do drive deeper into the town to visit the bridge made from the old kiew steel ropes. Once you cross the bridge there is some nice pork and tidbits you can buy from the locals.

“Good visit”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

After you have climb the mountain to view the sunrise in the morning and had your breakfast of Sg.Lembing noodles this is one of the next attraction to visit.It is a interesting and educational place although the tram ride is a bit of a anticlimax as it is too short.Entrance fee of RM30 is ridiculously high but they now offer a 50% discount.They should gather visitors into group and have train their personel to bring in these groups so that they can explain and provide more information regarding the mines.
