depart to Gopeng
town where we will have our breakfast, by 10.00am visit Kellie's
Castle and by 11am we start caving
until 3 or 4pm, Change clothing & clean up at
Tempurung Cave and head for Lata Kinjang or Batu Berangkai
Waterfall for a cool dip. By 6pm we should start heading back to Kuala
- One of the most majestic White Marble & Limestone
formations in Malaysia is�the Tempurung Mountain.
Concealed within this limestone massif in an intricate�system
of caves of magnificent proportions forming a honeycomb
inside the�limestone hill. These caves are actually a
breath-taking gallery of Stalagmites, Stalactites, Rim
Stone Pools, Curtains, Straws, Flowstones, Crystals,
Pillars &�other amazing rock formations, which
are a sample of superb speleological wonders found only in
this part of the world. Tempurung Cave is the main
attraction here. The cave meanders under the limestone
hill forming a tunnel of wondrous and endless rock
formations that run from East to West with a stream
running through�it nearly 1.9 KM in length. In early
1950 to 1960 this cave was used by the Communist as a hide
out as there are drawings and writings (in mandarin) found
on the wall at the Rolls Royce Chamber and also you will
see some tools left by Communist & miners (mining for
Tin) in early 1970's at the Gergasi Chamber and a
beautiful hanging rock garden at Alam Chamber.
Tempurung cave is suitable for beginners (for
educational caving) as well as for the adventurous one, as
you walk in to this cave you will see almost all cave
formations and it is one of the most beautiful caves in
Malaysia besides Mulu
Caves & Pasir
Kinjang Waterfall -
visit to Tempurung & Kandu is incomplete without a
visit to Lata Kinjang,�ie Kinjang Water-falls. The
falls are awesome with its meters high cascade that�can
even be seen from the North-South Highway. The falls flow
becomes a river�that provides families and sun
seekers the opportunity to bathe in its cool waters.�There
are some facilities in this area, such as Toilets, Shower,
Food Stalls,�Souvenir Shop & etc.
Waterfall is located in the heart of Kampar Town. The
difference between�these two water-falls is that,
there are no facilities at this waterfall (Batu Berangkai)
& the falls�are not as high as the Kinjang
Waterfalls, the scenery is beautiful for photographers.
The crowd in this waterfall is not as�bad as in the Kinjang
Waterfalls but do expect some picnickers or sun
seekers on weekends and public holidays. The water is cool
and just right for a dip.
amazing leftover from colonial times is set by a small
river about�30 KM South West of Ipoh. The castle
referred to is in fact an old unfinished�
was to be one in the mould of great colonial houses,
complete�with Moorish-style windows & even a
lift. A wealthy British Plantation Owner,� William
Kellie Smith, who lived in a splendid mansion in this area
in the early�19th century, commissioned the building
of the "Castle", which was to be the�home
of his (as yet unborn) son. The house was never occupied,
as he died�before the castle could be completed.
