2nd Anniversary to Gua Tempurung & Sungai Klah

18 March 2011 @ Gua Tempurung, Perak

*rub eyes*

Oh? 2 years already? So fast!

Card, cake and roses

This year, we decided to go for a more relaxed one-day trip. First stop - Gua Tempurung.

Looooooong drive up north

I've heard so much about this cave but have never been there. I think in Primary school we studied about it, yes?

We took the cheapest tour, which costs RM6 per person. A bit regretted for not taking a longer tour. Maybe next time, anyone wanna go?

Walking into the cave

Surprisingly, the pathway and lighting and the tour guide was pretty good. You might think that there's nothing much to see in a cave except rock formation. But when the guide tells you what the rock resembles, it became very interesting.

From the end point of our tour

I was very amazed with the inside of the cave actually. I never thought rocks can be so interesting! We even saw crystals but they were too small to be photographed.

Some visitors are really uncivilized. Carving and writing on the walls... Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!

Last picture of us before we exit the cave

On the way to our next destination, we dropped by Kampar for a quick visit to my brother's rented house. We took a tour around UTAR campus and had lunch in Kampar. Geesh, the lake beside the campus is beautiful.

After lunch, both of us bid farewell to my brother and head on south to Sungai Klah Hot Springs & Spa. Quite a few people on my Facebook have posted photos of this place and it looks kinda cool. We decided to see it with our own eyes.

Entrance Fee and Opening Hours

We reached the place a little late, so the Fresh Mountain Spring Pool was closed. But the bright side was, our entrance fee was RM8 per person only.

Some decorations with hot spring water flowing

After surveying the place a bit, we quickly changed into our get-wet-clothes and jumped into the water! There were still a lot of people at the pool though it's quite late already.

The Hot Springs Pool that's still open

We dipped into the hot pool then splashed ourselves with cold water repetitively for a few times. Oh Syok!

Then we walked to the reflexology path, smaller hot spring pools and to the ultimate HOT spring to boil the eggs.

Don't put your fingers in there....

Here's the guide for your perfect egg

We stayed until quite late where most people already left the place. I like it quiet but it's kinda spooky too, being at an unfamiliar and dark place.

We then bathed and headed back to KL right after that. The drive out of Sungai Klah was very dark as there weren't lots of street lights.

It was a really fun road trip with my beloved. I wanna go to Sungai Klah again! Wheee~~ Billy, out.
