Explorace : Batu Caves
Batu Caves is a limestone hill, which has a series of caves and cave temples, located in Gombak district, 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. Batu Caves is also the name of the nearby village.
The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Murugan. It is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia.
They consist of three main caves and a number of smaller ones. The caves are made of limestone and 400 meters long and 100 meter high. They were discovered in 1892.

From Cheras you can reach the Batu Caves easily through MRR2, Its take around 15 to 20 minutes time... (depends to the traffic)
At your arrival you will be greeted by lots of pigeons. You have to climb 272 steps and our group took around 10 minutes to the peak., which will lead you to the religious and magnificent Batu Caves.
If you go up the stairs, you can meet a lot of long tailed-macaque monkeys and if you have peanuts with you, they'll climb to you as I won't consider recommending. You might fall though. You can take photo's of them.
