Trip to Panching caves & Sungai Lembing

Took my two elder sons to Panching Caves or Gua Charas half way on the Kuantan Sungai Lembing road since i haven't been there for 25 long years.
This is a 170m high limestone hill which have a main cave with a Buddhist and a Hindu Temple inside.
You will have to pay some donations for the upkeep of the place
eg lighting in the cave at the entrance before the ladder up.

Wei Shen praying.


Wei Han's turn.


Climbing up for a nice view.


One for the road.



This one is at Sungai Lembing ex-tin mine silo nearby the mining tunnels,
where all the tin rich earth are poured into it
and passed on the the mill below.


In front of a storage tunnel maybe for explosive.



The Sungai Lembing Museum displays things from the past underground tin mine.
Admission is free!


Replica of the mine's rail track.



A group photo with cousin Sin Yee in the museum.
