Elephant Sanctuary Kuala Gandah and Batu Caves Day Tours

Elephant Sanctuary Kuala Gandah

Elephant Sanctuary

Elephant Sanctuary

This centre was established in 1989 by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks. A base for the Elephant Relocation Team which started in 1974.

Being the only centre in Malaysia, the team is dedicated to locating, subduing, translucent problem elephants from areas where their habitats are constantly being encroached by plantations, to Malaysia's National Parks such as Taman Negara.

Over the past 25 years the strong team has helped to prevent the further decline of the elephant population by relocating more than 300 wild elephants!

Kuala Gandah also aims to promote public awareness of the elephant's plight in Malaysia and to support research into elephant translocation and conservation. It also aims to educate the public about the importance of habitat and environmental preservation.

 

Batu Caves

Batu Caves

Batu Caves first discovered over 125 years ago, Batu Caves has never ceased to attract visitors. Only 13km from Kuala Lumpur's central business district and just outside the city limits, these famous caverns are easily accessible. Formed within the framework of an imposing limestone outcrop about 400 million years ago, Batu Caves actually consists of three main caves and several smaller ones. The best known of these is Temple or Cathedral Cave.

Temple Cave has a ceiling looming over 100 meters overhead and features ornate Hindu shrines. To reach it, one has to climb 272 steps, a feat performed by many Hindu worshippers on the way to the caves to offer prayers to their revered deities.

Visit and timing is subject to change with or without prior notice due to traffic/weather conditions. Please note that while we operate successful trips in this part of the world throughout the year, some changes may occur in our itineraries due to inclement weather and common seasonal changes to timetables and transport routes. This can happen with little notice so please be prepared for modifications to the route.
