Getting there and away

KTM Kommuter now services Batu Caves which is its terminal stop for the Port Klang – Batu Caves line. A convenient place to catch the train is from KL Sentral.

Batu Caves is 13 KM from the city center and a taxi should not cost too much if they use the meter.

If you plan to drive, it is just off the MRR2 Jalan Ipoh roundabout. From Kuala Lumpur on Jalan Kuching - Jalan Ipoh, turn up to Bulatan Batu Caves and take the 3 o’clock exit. Batu caves is at the next exit. There is ample parking for a small fee (unless it is during Thaipusam).
