The Batu Cave is a popular tourist destination for many tourists to Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia. Not known to many are unique species of life and important past geography that has shaped Kuala Lumpur and it's modern landscape.

The walk starts at the Batu Cave Train station, into the Temple grounds along and up the popular stairs of the Batu Cave Complex. We would do our best to explain 440 million years of Natural history of the Kuala Lumpur Limestone, its flora and fauna seen along and that is unique to the Batu Cave and how the Limestone has shaped the Klang Valley.
Of course, We will touch on the "recent" human activities of the area (Hindu Temple & Staircase)

This would be a walk with lots of information about the Batu Cave hill and its significance and impact to the Klang Valley and to limestone conservation in the region.

In the end, we would normally proceed to an Undeveloped Cave, however, due to Conservation issues we have cut this section from the tour to preserve and respect the research work that is currently being conducted on two unique spider species. NOT GOING the Undeveloped cave.

Therefore the price drop and the simple walk of Batu Cave Grounds to raise awareness and knowledge of this heavily visited but poorly interpreted area.

My name is Zarris Kem. I have been Caving since the age of 15 in Perlis & helped find a new species of Crab at the age of 18. I was a Senior Education Officer, Lead Technical Caving and Maintenence officer, & Guide Trainer at the now Closed Dark Caves, in Batu Caves ran by CMG. Working there from 2011 -2016. Guiding walk-in tourists, to Scientific tours. In the following years as an active member & Research Guide of Malaysian Cave & Karst Conservancy, I have been guiding scientists for the Scientific Expedition of the Batu Cave, & hope to spread more awareness on this unique & overlooked hill/environment.

The first stop is the Batu Cave Temple Complex. It is an area millions pass without knowing about its natural history, Unique flora and Fauna, Conservation Significance either below at its base and up the stairs.

Zarris was a great guide! My mum and I had an awesome morning with Zarris exploring the Batu Caves. Zarris is passionate about the caves which showed during the tour. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, we learnt a lot during our walk. Thank you Zarris for a wonderful experience and all your recommendations for food and activities in the area :)

This was an interesting and unique tour with Zarris. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the caves and about conserving nature. The tour is well planned, including the timing of the tour where you can take the best picture inside Batu cave with the ray of sunshine coming through... one for the IG! He also gave me some photography and filming tips! The second cave was a new experience to me, the climb to reach the cave is a little steep but Zarris helped me the entire way. The cave itself is amazing to see and to appreciate nature more. Thanks Zarris!

As a Malaysian who lived in kl for more than 10 years, visited Batu Caves in Thaipusam and done caving before in Malaysia, i signed up for Zarris's experience with some doubt, running out of good option to bring my wife to do interesting thing in kl. But it turns out to be one of the best experiences we did and shamefully exactly what a Malaysian need to learn and appreciate our lovely home! The trip was fun & insightful with Zarris giving info & answering questions from perspectives of history, culture, geology, biology and nature as we explore various beautiful landscape! We have learnt to appreciate Batu Caves in the context of greater picture of its significance/role & impact to kl, malaysia or even the world! As dark cave is closed at the time, Zarris brought us to the other cave - which the short steep hike can be quite challenging for people that are not used to outdoor. But he is patient and kind to slowly guide and help my wife up. really proud of Malaysian guide like Zarris, highly recommend experience in kl - especially for Malaysian!!!

My experience with Zarris's Batu Caves natural history tour has to be my favorite of all those I too around KL. Zarris has great passion and knowledge of the subject, and it shows in how smoothly he can manage his topics despite my constant query interruptions. His experience as a tour guide gives him a good grasp of handling crowds of different sizes. He is also a pretty cool guy in general with a good sense of humour. (You should ask about the Indian restaurants and the free coconut.) The second part of the tour, where you check out an undeveloped limestone cave, is a bit more challenging for beginners with no trekking experience, so do come in prepared. Just remember to bring with you a sturdy pack, some water, clothing appropriate for trekking/climbing, shoes with good grip, and common sense. Nature lovers will really appreciate this part! If you love nature, culture, and history, this is the tour for you.
