Kek Look Tong @ Gunung Rapat, Ipoh

After lunch at Dai Shu Geok ( 大树脚/大树头) , we carry out our first activity visiting cave. My friend was interested outdoor activities thus he bring us to Kek Look Tong in Gunung Rapat, Ipoh. Slightly 30 min drive from the Ipoh town. Rather confusing at first to find this place, because in ipoh there's a lot cave hidden out there and the road is a bit tedious, it took us sometime depending on the GPS to guide there.

The Kek Look Tong Cave Temple is a tourist attraction for cave. The cave complex comprises a central altar featuring a number of Buddhist figures as well as various deities of the Chinese pantheon. Surrounded by stunning stalactites and stalagmite formations, the cave provides a peaceful prayer site for Buddhist devotees and general enjoyment for the public.
