Abstract: The trend of Kinta Valley karst structure is mainly along the 310°-350° with minor directions of about 030°, 040°, 055°, 070° and 085°. These trends originated from tectonic stresses and are observed to have controlled the formation of certain karst features such as dolines, wangs, caves and collapse.
