I’ve seen a lot of impressive things over the course of this trip, but the entrance to Batu Caves — featuring a towering, 140 foot golden statue — is right up there.
I mean, look at that thing.
Then you climb up all those stairs (it’s a lot of stairs), and there’s an enormous cave with multiple temples inside.
It’s pretty incredible.
That’s not to mention the monkeys!
There are dozens of monkeys that just hang around on the steps and near the entrance to the cave.
As you can see, they were pretty much the best.
Even if the caves themselves weren’t spectacular (which they were), it would be worth coming here just to see the monkeys.
Plus, here’s some video I took of a monkey eating a banana. Yes: I got to see a real-life monkey eating a banana, so I think it’s safe to say that my life has peaked and that it’s all downhill from here.
