Batu Caves - First discovered over 100 years ago, the Batu Caves have never ceased to attract visitors. Only 13 km north of Kuala Lumpur, they consist of three main caves and a number of smaller ones.The best known of these caves is the Temple Cave, a large cavern with a vaulted ceiling about 100 metres above the floor. To reach it one has to climb 272 steps, a feat performed by many Hindus on the way to the caves to offer prayers to their revered deities. Every year, on Thaipusam, as many as 800,000 devotees and other visitors may throng the caves. As a form of penance or sacrifice, many of them carry kavadis. These are large, brightly decorated frameworks, usually combined with various metal hooks and skewers which are used to pierce the skin, cheeks and tongue. A little below the Temple Cave is the Dark Cave, a two-kilometre long network of relatively untouched caverns containing a large number of cave animals, including several found nowhere else in the world! Genting Highlands - amidst the freshness of cool, crisp mountain air about 6,000 feet above sea level, lies Malaysia's only casino resort. Stop at the cable car station and take a skyway cable car ride, with the sky above you and a tropical rainforest below, ride up to the hilltop on the longest and fastest cable car in southeast Asia. You can also take time off to enjoy the numerous recreational facilities at the indoor and outdoor theme park.
