Perak Tong Cave Temple
Perak Tong has become one of the best cave temples in Malaysia. After climbing the steps and passing through the narrow entrance passage, the limestone cave opens up into a giant space with a high dome and branching off into hidden recesses and grottoes. A golden sitting Buddha statue, 40 feet tall, dominates the temple & The walls of the cavern are decorated with colourful murals depicting characters and events from Chinese mythology and Buddhist scriptures. There are numerous statues and carvings scattered around the temple, including a female with 18 arms who could be Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. The strong aroma of incense mixed with the earthy cave smell lends the cave a special atmosphere.

Great day

Amazing to see the work of the sanctuary and see the orang-utans being looked after so well. The santuary relies on guests so you are contributing with your visit. Rajan our guide was very knowledgeable about the area, history and then later we stopped at the caves.

Great day

Such a long journey from Kuala Lumpur but well worth it to see these beautiful rescued animals. It was interesting to hear how they have had some successful births that have been returned to the wild. The transport there was in a lovely vehicle that added to the comfort and the tour guide while new to the job made the tour, thank you
Great family day out

Driver was prompt and very knowledgeable. Orangutan island was small but was lovely to see the animals so close and interacting with the visitors albeit through the fence. The humans were in a caged walk way and the orangutan were loose on the island.

The cave temple was spectacular, the painting inside was amazing. The clime to the top is hard work so beware.
Lovely trip

The only reason I gave this trip four stars was because the car should have been more comfortable for such a long trip. Otherwise the experience was great.
The driver was very kind and quite quiet.
He stopped for convenient toilet and food breaks on our way to and back from our experience and he was a very patient man.
The Orang Utan Island visit was an amazing experience. The experienced staff members explained how they were helping increase in numbers these majestic endangered species in their own habitat and it was great that we were walking in the long 200 metre cage rather than the other way.
The Orang Utans appeared healthy happy and well taken care of before they were reintroduced to the jungles where they belonged.
It was an important learning trip. The caves were also majestic and an enjoyable experience.
Long day trip

V long drive for a fairly short period with the orangutan. The orangutans were great, could have watched them for hours. No babies which was disappointing. Our driver/guide was great and took us to a couple of additional sites enroute, which made for a better experience.
