Entrance fee RM1.00, to rent a LED light RM4.00. We spent about half an hour there without a tour guide. the place looks old, dirty and horrendously, full with bats, smelly. The staircase is rusty, do not feel safe at all.

Wow, the cave is massive !! A true hidden gem. A lot of steps to access the cave and throughout the cave itself which are all concreted but quite slippery from the humidity and dampness inside of the cave. Certain level of fitness required and...More

Went with a driver to see this cave. Amazing place, but only 4 stars because of the poorly maintained stairways and paths. After rain it was extremely wet and slippery and a bit scary at times. But don't let this put you off. Just be...More

Beautiful environment, where you can take really pretty photos. Do combine the visit with the Wind Cave that gives the more traditional, dark cave experience. But I preferred the beauty of the Fairy caves. Works well for families, also with young children.

Bring a torch and hat to cover your hat from bat pooh! Very slippery underfoot in places, so bring good footware.

The place is about 50min drive from Kuching. The entrance fee is 5RM for foreigners. We spend about 1h in total in the cave. Before entering the main area you will need a torch (I just use the one from the phone) and there will...More

It's a big cave inside and I meant it's really big. Lots of stairs to climb, though manageable by most adults as the whole trail is ain't that long too. An hour is more than enough for you to walk the trail and explore the...More

Definately looks like a fairy cave. Plenty of stairs to walk up to the top but definately well worth it. Kids enjoyed it too
