For adrenaline pumping, there’s nothing like caving at Gua Tempurung and white water rafting at Gopeng. Gua Tempurung that runs about 1.3 kilometres is reputed as the country’s largest natural limestone underground cavity. Ideally located within the vicinity of Gopeng, the cave has five humongous domes with ceilings that resemble coconut shells with different shapes of stalagmites and stalactites thus the name Gua Tempurung.
Gua Tempurung best for cave lovers
As experienced cavers go deep down the largest limestone cave, you’ll be delighted to uncover and explore the mysterious and secrets that lie beneath. For less adventurous cavers, it is recommended to join the guided short tours in which you’ll explore the cave by walking on the walkway and platforms.
Find the underground river
However, if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, then perhaps you should embark on the longer excursions or tours that last between two and three hours as the guides will take you through the challenging underground river. You’ll definitely feel satisfied as you get to see the different formations of stalactite and stalagmite.
Try the Catwalk River Adventure
For those who aren’t too sure which tour to pick, here’s some suggestions – catwalk tour or catwalk & river adventure. Basically, there are two packages available under Catwalk Tour which are Golden Flowstone and Top of the World. Golden Flowstone Tour is an easy guided tour highly recommended for less adventurous cavers that lasts about 40 minutes only while Top of the World Tour is a slightly more challenging journey that lasts more than 1 hour and 30 minutes.
On another note, Catwalk & River Adventure includes a strenuous journey through the underground river that usually takes more than 3 hours to complete the route. Meanwhile, invigorating white water rafting at Gopeng is supported by experienced guides to ensure your safety. Safety briefings would be given by the guides before participants are allowed to embark their journey to cover the distance of 12 kilometres along the way that includes nine challenging rapids.
