Located about 20 km from Ipoh, Gopeng is filled with action-packed activities. Upon arrival at Gua Kandu, your experienced guide will give a short briefing as you put on your safety gear provided before commencing your caving adventure. Gua Kandu spans to about 1100m in length, making it the 7th longest cave in Peninsular Malaysia, and has several entrance and passageways. Get ready for an exciting and challenging excursion through this multi-chamber cave! Your caving adventure will start from the entrance of the ancient geological wonder that appears as a large and dark forbidding gap among the hills.
As Gua Kandu is a limestone cave, the air will be slightly heavy as you venture through it. Make sure to tread carefully as there are guano deposits scattered across the floor, low ceilings and formations as well as a stream running through. This adventure will require you to get on your hands and feet as you make it through the cave. Follow our friendly guide closely as he leads you through the dark cave and enlightens you on the interesting stories that lie beneath the walls.
Gua Kandu was named one of the top ten most important karst conservation sites in Kinta by the Malaysian Nature Society as it has a significantly high endemic wildlife diversity. Marvel at the mesmerizing limestone formations such as the unique stalactites and stalagmites. Some of this formations are highlighted by special lighting such as a stunning curtain-like structure of stalactites that will be unlike anything you have seen! Along the walls of the cave, you may come across some graffiti, left behind by the insurgents that used Gua Kandu as a communist guerrilla hideout during the Malayan Emergency days.
Deeper into the cave, you will find rays of light from two cave openings piercing through the darkness. More unique formations can be found, one of which is the famous formation that closely resembles a lion head.
