Bewah and Taat, two towering limestone hills abound with
mysteries and legends. These hills, occasionally shrouded in
mists, provide some of the most spectacular sights in Tasik
Before the creation of Tasik Kenyir, Taat had three caves and
the lowest entrance, the Tok Bidan Cave in now submerged
under water. This is the site where archaeologists and
historians had uncovered artefacts such as kitchen utensils,
axes and tools dating back to the Neolithic era.
You can now explore the Taat Caves through its two visible
entrances while the nearby Bewah Cave has only one
entrance. Inside these caves, an extraordinary sight of
stalactites and stalagmites awaits the explorer. It is advisable
to bring along torchlights should you explore these caves,
especially the Bewah where it is much darker.
As Taat and Bewah hold many secrets of the past, further
excavations are now being planned by the authorities in its bid
to unravel the mysteries and secrets of these caves.
KETENGAH with the cooperation of the State Museum and
other government agencies plans to provide better access to
these caves. As the safety of visitors is of top priority, better
facilities are now in store as these caves are expected to be a
top tourist attraction. It takes approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours
by boat to reach these caves from Pengkalan Gawi.
