Gua Kandu

The Introduction


Gua Kandu is a cave system in the vicinity of Gopeng in the Kinta Valley. It is located about half an hour from Gua Tempurung.

Gua Kandu was used by the Japanese during the Second World War. Later, it was taken over by Communist guerillas as their hideout during the Emergency. The cave is located within a karst outcrop beside the North South Expressway near Gopeng.

Today Gua Kandu is open to casual explorers. A private company is managing all the spelunking trips into the cave, in the company of guides. Visitors to the cave have to be prepared to do a bit of hiking. The entrance of the cave is through a steep climb. The ceiling of the cave is about 35 ft (11 meters) from the floor. It has stalagtites hanging down, looking like pieces of ceiling board.

To fully explore Gua Kandu, you will need over two hours. There are places where you have to crawl through, as the ceiling is just a few feet tall. Some parts of the cave appear to be a circular cavern, so if you aren't careful, you could end up going in circles.
