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 Kenyir Lake.
Before the creation of Kenyir Lake, Taat had three caves and the
lowest entrance, the Tok Bidan Cave is now submerged under water.
This is the site where archaeologists and historians had uncovered
artefacts such a 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
prior, 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.
