Gua Musang, Kelantan

Gua Musang is the name of a town and area in Kelantan, Malaysia.

It is also the name of a well known cave in the town. The name translates as Civet Cave.

The cave is located high in the hill right behind the railway station.

To reach the cave you walk along the railway platform, cross over the lines and follow the path past the houses, then climb steeply up the hill.

The cave entrance is a narrow rift which leads up and into a large chamber.
Climbing along the right side leads to the main chamber. This is a huge passage running through the hill. It's big.

In the entrance is a mass of multicoloured graffiti

The passage is high,

There are a few crickets and whip spiders in a side chamber. On the floor we saw lots of moth wings

The passage leads up to a back entrance

From the entrance there is a route to the top of the hill, but it was too wet and slippery to do when we visited.

Gua Musang register number Ktn 136/01.
