Climb Up to Malaysia's Batu Caves
Malaysia › Batu Caves
Added by Eric Bennett
Lots of Wild Monkeys. Amazing Cave Temple. Hindu Culture. Head up 250+ stairs to the caves.
The Batu Caves which are just north of Kuala Lumpur are reachable by the subway train. A ticket is just 2MR and you will need to get a hold of a map to see which train you need to take on the Red Line. The train drops you off right at the caves where there is a huge gold statue of Lord Murugan and a flight of 250+ stairs leading up to the cave.
There are monkeys all over the stairway leading up to the cave and also inside the caves. Be careful, these monkeys are super wild and not scared of people. I saw them steal items and food right out of people ands and one actually lobbed a coconut at my head while I was shooting a photo and it hit my camera and broke my display screen, so try not to play with them. With that said, it's easy to get awesome photos of them especially in this amazing setting.
It’s definitely a memorable place. I highly recommend checking it out while in Kuala Lumpur.

Kek Lok Si is about a 3 kilometer (1.9 mi) walk from the Penang Hill Station, but I recommend calling an Uber, or renting a scooter.
Rock Climb at Bukit Keteri
Malaysia / Bukit Keteri, Perlis
Drive through a large parking lot to access a dirt road leading right up to the mountains. Walk toward the mountains, and you're faced with two trails, one heading left and one heading right.
