My niece and her friend from Australia dropped by for a visit in KL and wanted to see the famous Batu Caves in Gombak. My last visit to Batu Caves was 8 years ago and this time my little toddler tagged along.
Here are some random photos of the famous tourist spot in KL...
Majestic Gold Statue of Lord Murugan at the steps leading to the caves. This is the tallest Lord Muruga statue in the world. It was drizzling when we started to climb up the 272 steps. I have to carry my little toddler half way up the steps. Gosh, I am a little bit out of shape liao! lol! It was a good morning exercise for me.
Finally, we reached the entrance of the caves.
Nice formation of lime stones and mineral deposits inside the caves...
One more round of steps to climb to reach the end section.....
Why did the chicken enter the cave?
It was drizzling out side, so most of the monkeys went indoor into the caves.
Another monkey......The Malaysian Long Tail Macaque
An opening in the middle of the caves. A nice view up!
Have to carry my little toddler all the way down again. The steps are wet and a little slippery. I proceeded slowly down.
The dark cave is at the bottom of the steps. There is a counter at the entrance of this dark cave, in which you can register for guided dark cave exploration for a small fee. Look out for the Trap Door Spider here. My little toddler wanted to go in the dark cave but I guess he is still too small for dark cave expedition.
