What to Expect

This tour begins with hotel pickup in Kuala Lumpur. Embark on a journey through Little India, a multicultural neighborhood famed for its colorful buildings. If you’ve just arrived to the city, the scenic drive provides a good way to orient yourself.

You’ll arrive at the Batu Caves, limestone masses home to golden Hindu shrines and a plethora of grey macaques. Let your guide bring the Hindu history of the monument to life and ascend 272 steps to the statue of Lord Murugan.

Following a tour of the Cathedral Cave, you’ll climb back onto your coach and return to your Kuala Lumpur hotel.
