About Kandu Cave:

Kandu cave is also famous as Gua Kandu which is an ancient cave situated at a distance of 20 kilometers from Ipoh in Malaysia. Spanning to a length of 1100 meters, it is the seventh longest cave in Peninsular Malaysia.

Known for its stunning chambers and passageways, the cave entrance appears like a large gap between the peninsular mountains. A cave exploration excursion rewards visitors with incredible rock formations, and some amazingly magnanimous limestone structures.

There are walls left by communist rebels which mark the evidence of a rich history that enhances its beauty all the more. You will also find a stream running through the chambers as you duck and crawl across the low ceiling and dodge the guano deposits.

The Malaysian Nature Society named Kandu cave among the top ten most important Karst conservation sites in Kinta. The cave can prove to be an adventure enthusiast’s oasis where one has to walk, crawl, climb and even slide through dark chambers where a guided tour providing proper supervision helps a lot.
