    The number is?..

    by muddybok Updated Aug 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    272. The total steps for the main stair is 272 steps. Oh ya! The numbers will only found at the middle row of the stair.

    Now you can catch your breath as long as you like.

    Actually, I'm supposed to train walking the stair few times a week before I hike Mt Kinabalu. But good intention may not necessary yield good result. So, how many times I trained walking the stair you might ask. The answer is "not even once". That's why I suffer so much when I hike the Mt Kinabalu.

    Let there be light!

    I'm still right when I say the main chamber is fully covered. This opening on top of this mini world is actually on the side of the wall.

    One of the VTer is having a very spectacular picture of light shining through the hole.

    Hanging tough

    You must be thinking I’m going to tell you how many steps in total. Just forget about that figure thing for awhile. Just look up the hill and enjoy the stalactite formation for awhile.

    If you like, you can turn around to look at the direction facing the city. I don’t remember I saw KLCC from here.

    Bridge to Temple

    by muddybok Written Jul 28, 2004

    On the left, there is one big pond separate the main cave from the temple cave. You can access to the indoor (or should i call it in-cave) temple area with colorful painting & statue for Hindu believers.

    If you were to visit Batu Caves around/during Thaipusam period, you will be overwhelm with possession who pay their pilgrimage to Batu Caves.

    Hindus celebrate Thaipusam on the tenth month of their calendar. It coincides with the full moon at the end of January and beginning of February 'Thai' is the Hindu month which falls between January 15 to February 15 and 'Pusam' refers to a star which is at its brightest during the period of this festival. Celebrated in all parts of the world where there is a concentration of South Indians, the manifestation of the festival is best witnessed at Batu Caves and Penang.

    Here, I capture the caves' walls...Looks like it's a million years in the making !
    I'm no cave freak...but being in Batu Caves makes me feel good being in a cave !
    Of course, in many parts of Malaysia, there are many caves to explore...but I could say that Batu Caves was the first cave that I have been to in my country !

    While the previous few photos, I showed the right side of the caves as we entered in...this photo shows the left side of the caves.
    There used to be a big statue but we can't see it anymore...
    We could see tourists taking photos there on the photo.

    This photo was taken by me as I looked back behind me...
    You can see the direct sunlight coming in from the top of the caves, you can see the yellow spotlights on the walls...& you can also see the entrance of the caves.

    Further On...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Further on...we can see some steps...not as high as the steps that we have to climb to reach Batu Caves though...
    Climbing up the steps in front of us would bring us to another opening of the caves...with sunlight coming in from the top as well !

    The Yellow Spotlight Again...

    by coceng Written Jan 29, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the yellow spotlight again, put on the walls of the caves....maybe to shine on the statues, maybe to indicate certain vibes of the caves.
    It is also great to test my digital camera in capturing the lights !
    I love my camera !

    These Rock Formations...

    by coceng Written Jan 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These rock formations are not located all over the caves, but just some corners...especially the dark corners where people don't really want to look at.
    They are visible anyway even if you don't look for them hard enough...
