Take a Walk into the Cave of Darkness (Gua Kelam)

My first experience to explore the Dark Cave was in 2001 (soon after I married to my beloved hubby). “Gua Kelam”, which means the Cave of Darkness, is among the tourists’ favourite places in Perlis. The cave is located at Kaki Bukit Village, nearby Wang Kelian. This place is popular for its enchanting “cave walk” where you can enter from one end of the cave and come out at a different end.


With RM1 entrance fee for adults, we start a walk into the cave. The only path into the cave is via a suspension wooden bridge, which made of a wide wooden walkway. Even though the walkway is generally well kept, please be careful while walking along the walkway. (maybe the wood is not that strong, who knows…)


The wooden bridge links Kaki Bukit to the Wang Tangga Valley, a valley on the opposite end of Gua Kelam. I tried to capture several pictures while I was in the cave. But, unfortunately, the pictures were all blur… as the walkway vibrates while I capture the pictures. If you’re patient, you can wait until the walkway is empty to take your pictures. It’s really nice if you have a “good” camera. You can capture “good” picture even though the lighting is not that good.


There’s not much different from the first time I went there…and today. But, many tourists and local people love to go there. Some of them like to explore the beauty and uniqueness of the cave, while others love to spend time with their families by picnicking at the recreational park.
