Located at the foothills of limestone hills is Kaki Bukit (in Malay means "Foot of Hill) which is a popular local tourist destination because of the limestone cave called Gua Kelam ("Cave of Darkness),
There is a tunnel dug through this cave of 370 m long by an Englishman during the British Colonial rule for the purpose as a short cut to transfer tin ore mined. The cave has a subterranean river over which a 8 feet wide wooden bridge is built over the river.
There are electical lights inside the dark cave and worth visiting to see the limestone formation and the bats inside. Admission for adults is RM1.
Coming to Kaki Bukit, remember to exit on your left where there is a sign. Otherwise, you will keep going to Wang Kelian and the Thai border like us when we missed the turn off.
Near the car park, we also saw a family of long tailed spectacled eyes black monkeys called "Silverleaf Monkey" walking on telephone pole overhead cables. Their baby has orangish fur. Unlike the more long tailed macaques, these Silverleaf monkeys appeared more gentle and shyer.
