Located outside of the Batu Caves and cave temples in the Gombak district, Kuala Lumpur, the giant Buddha here is the world’s highest statue of the Hindu deity, Murugan.
When visiting such a striking landmark and inimitable religious site, it is likely that you will not want to taint your time her with slips, trips and falls, or other travel-related accidents.
Stay safe and travel savvy during your excursion to Batu Caves, and avoid putting in a claim for travel accident compensation on your return to the UK.
Beyond slips and trips: Accidents at the Batu Caves
To appreciate the magnificence of the Cathedral Cave within the Batu Caves temple complex, there are no less than 272 steep stone steps to climb, behind the site’s awe-inspiring gold giant Buddha.
Steep steps can often lead to slips, trips and falls, so minimising the risk of travel-related injury is key when you visit this world famous heritage area.
Reduce the risk of accidents on your holiday by:
- Being attentive to the terrain you are using, watching for issues such as crumbling stone or uneven flooring
- Staying hydrated
- Only using accessible and designated rock-climbing routes
- Walking without pre-packed food to reduce the risk of monkey-related accidents or injuries
- Viewing native flora and fauna from a safe distance
- Refraining from leaving pathways
Have you been involved in an accident abroad?
When you book your travel through a UK holiday company, that business has a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety when abroad.
If you suffer an accident on holiday that is not your fault, while flying, at your hotel, or during a pre-booked tour or excursion, it is likely that the travel company is liable for any harm or distress you have experienced.
In cases such as these, a law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline, can help you determine your eligibility to claim travel accident compensation.
