I was able to visit this site last April 2012, prior to its inscription as a WHS (June). By that time, I didn't even know that it was on the T-list!Anyhow, the inscribed area is big - a bit scattered as well. Though some digs are open for visits, I never got the chance to see any of these then (at the moment, I've yet to hear a good review about these dig sites, so I guess its really nothing to feel sorry about). Nevertheless, I managed to see the museum that houses some of the findings in the area. I hope that some upgrading and modernization of the facilities in this site are on their way, though -- its really needed. For some weird reasons, back in 2012, the famed Perak Man (the single most important part of its inscription) was not in Lenggong Valley. I saw it, however, earlier that year -- as a guest article -- in the Sabah State Museum! After much lobbying made by locals and heritage advocates, we can now see the Perak Man back in his hometown. Site: 6/10; Experience: 5/10.
