Batu Caves, Kuala Lumpur

The Dark Caves (part of Batu Caves), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are so unique. They have magnificent cave formations of stalactite and stalagmite that interestingly continue to form even today albeit very slowly and you are not allowed to touch any formation. The newly formed formations are absolutely pearl white. It is home to an ancient animal ecosystem 100 million years old that only thrives on bat poop. Bats are their only link to the outside world and most parts of the cave are so dark that the human eye can never adjust to the darkness.

Nature can be so unique! Kudos to all those involved in preserving the Dark Caves, a spectacular phenomenon!!
