But apparently it is easy to go there by yourself, so spare your Ringgit for tour agent, just follow what we did.
It is easy and cheap.
We went to KL Sentral by KL Monorail (from Imbi Station near our hotel in Jalan Pudu), took us RM 1.60 per pax to reach KL Sentral. From there we took a walk around 5 minutes to get to KL Sentral Station (I don't understand why KL Monorail station in KL Sentral is separated from the other train's station in KL Sentral, perhaps they're doing the integration, there are a lot of construction works is going on now).
So from KL Sentral to Batu Caves...
We need to buy tickets of KTM Komuter to Batu Caves (heading to Sentul route), cost us only RM 2, so cheap!. Thanks God I didn't book the tour, it might cost us hundred times more. Do the same in reverse for going back route.
The journey is pretty far, but we enjoyed the view, although using the train is sooo much faster, took us around 40 minutes to get there. Hubby is kinda hooked up with his Instagram activity, so during this trip he kept taking a lot of pictures with his iPhone.
The sun shone so bravely that day. It was a lovely day, I love sunny day than rainy day, especially because I can take a lot of beautiful pictures during sunny day instead of rainy/gloomy day.
The sky was blue, with clouds here and there. Beautiful.
I love the view of Batu caves surrounding from the KTM station. You'll see a lot of activities from up there.
From the KTM station, Batu Caves is only 2minutes walk, and a lot of Indian food stalls nearby the location, as this (Batu Caves) is one of the sacred place for Hindu's in Malaysia.The caves are made of limestone and formed as a huge hill from the outer side,they were discovered in 1892 however it's said to be 400 mio years old, amazing!.Standing in front of it is one of the Hindu's God gold plated statue, a gigantic one!, lovely!. Nearby, a lot of Hindu's temples, statues from Hindu's/Ramayana story and even there's one big gigantic green Hanoman statue!.

|The Dark Cave: no spiders in sight :)|
There are a lot of long tailed-macaque monkeys around the cave, so becareful with your belonging (they're kinda a pick pockets, hahaha) but if you have peanuts, you may feed them. Inside the Cave is pretty amazing, but given I have visited other stalagmite and stalactites so it's no longer charmed me that much, but still worth to visit. You can see in front of the entry gate of Batu Caves, there are a lot of pigeons flying around, you can feed them too, they love bread crumbs, I think.
