Gua Charas, Panching
A friend and I was on a road trip to the east coast of peninsular Malaysia and we have come across a few interesting places on our way. Topping the list is Gua Charas, a cave located outside of Kuantan which houses a few Hindu and Buddhist temples.
Getting to Gua Charas can be tricky. There isn't a proper tarred road, and you would need to enter a private estate using a rocky, pothole-laden one-lane road to get there. Having said that, Gua Charas is not accessible by public transport.
How to Get to Gua Charas
- Go onto the Kuantan-Sungai Lembing road (C4) and you will notice a brown signboard stating 'Gua Charas'
- Turn right and go onto Jalan Gua Charas on a Y-intersection
- Drive for about one kilometer through the oil palm plantation. Gua Charas will be on your right
