Private Tour: UNESCO Archaeological Heritage Of The Lenggong Valley from Ipoh
Lenggong Valley is considered as one of Malaysia’s most valuable archaeological site. In fact, the oldest known human activity can be traced back to this site. Some archaeological experts have dubbed Lenggong Valley as an open-air museum – there is evidence of cave drawings, skeletons and precious finds (weapons, stone tools, pottery, etc) within the area.
Situated in the lush Lenggong Valley, the property includes four archaeological sites in two clusters which span close to 2 million years, one of the longest records of early man in a single locality, and the oldest outside the African continent. It features open-air and cave sites with Palaeolithic tool workshops, evidence of early technology. The number of sites found in the relatively contained area suggests the presence of a fairly large, semi-sedentary population with cultural remains from the Palaeolithic, Neolithic and Metal ages.
Lenggong Valley was added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites on 30th June 2012.... More
