These are nothing like the caves you’ve seen before. Batu Caves, secluded far from the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur, is a series of caves and sacred shines nestled within a limestone hill. Although the Petronas Twin Towers is the leading attraction in the capital city of Malaysia, many tourists also flock to this prominent Hindu shrine.
Getting here is easy as you can ride a taxi, bus or train. But climbing to the peak of the caves can be quite challenging. The climb is composed of 272 steps. Not regular steps but steep and high steps that might leave you short of breath. But once you see what’s in store for you, you’ll find your efforts more than worth it.
