Enjoy this half-day pilgrimage from Kuala Lumpur to Batu Caves. The etymology of the word Batu comes from rock or stone, which is entirely fitting for this 2-kilometer wide and 329-meter high limestone mountain in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Batu Caves Tour is a great way to experience these wondrous limestone cliffs and 113-year-old temple complex. You can do this as a half-day tour from Kuala Lumpur, or combine another activity to make this into a full-day cultural outing.

Choose to climb the 272 Batu Caves steps up to the entrance of the cave and marvel at the vast views of Kuala Lumpur below. Take photos of the world’s second tallest statue of a Hindu deity and discover traditional Batik paintings and the famous Royal Selangor Pewter factory.
