Spelunking Tour 4(Grand tour) at Gua Tempurung, Gopeng, Perak 14 January 2012

Grand tour starts every half hour from 9am to 11am.
Our tour took about 4.5 hour to complete. It was highly strenuous for me but the children found it not.

Previously Hui ended at Tour 2 and we waved goodbye as dad and En climbed down the over 200 steps to the dark cave to complete Tour 3.

Today, Hui decended the stairs with us to complete Tour 4. From these steps onward, the cave was in total darkness.

Some Chinese inscription on a rock.

Slid on our bum all the way down (below) 

And jumped down.

Water level at Hui's waist.

Some part of the caverns come with rather low ceilings.

From afar, I thought I saw white styrofoam boxes lay strewn everywhere in the dark. It turned out to be white shining rocks.

A total pitch dark. Headlight is a must for Tour 3 and 4.

Reached the end of the cave where we came to lush jungle greenery.

The adults admired a brave 4.5 year old Hui. 

Amazing rock formations.

We have to creep through this very low opening.

Sliding down a 9meter high cliff.

Here comes Hui.

Jumped into the hole and moved away before the next one jumped onto you.

Walked through all sorts of rock formation.

Yay! Finally, the end of the torture and my body ached terribly.

Hi, my friends and I were thinking of caving at Gua Tempurung. Was this under any package or did you go on your own initiative?
