The Kandu is situated in Malaysia’s second National Geopark called The Kinta Valley Geopark. Gua Kandu is one of the 18 geo-sites which includes Gunung Panjang, Gua Tambun, Gunung Datok, Gunung Rapat, Lata Ulu Chepor, Gunung Kanthan, Gunung Lang, Hutan Lipur Ulu Kinta, Gunung Tasek, Mata Air Panas Lubuk Timah, Gua Naga Mas, Air Terjun Sungai Chelik, Gua Tempurung, Jeram Sungai Kampar, Air Terjun Batu Berangkai and Gunung Korbu. The Kandu is nestled right at the bottom of Gunung Kandu, one of Perak’s historic limestone hills spanning about 1,100m in length. It offers caving activities which will normally take about two hours depending on the weather condition. Inside the cave, you’ll be fascinated with interesting rock formations, stalagmites and even patterns on the wall as you go from one chamber to another, while listening to our guide tell stories from Gua Kandu’s history. During the Emergency Period, Gua Kandu used to be one of the major strongholds for members of the Communist Party of Malaya (CPM). Evidence of these former cave dwellers can still be seen in some sections of Gua Kandu.
