Brilliant cheap day out don't bother with a tour just hire a scooter and get there yourself once your out Kuching it's just a long straight road there, beautiful caves never seen anything like it before don't go without taking a torch, if you don't like dark spaces or afraid of bats don't do it. Prepared to get your sweat... More

A must place to visit when you are visiting Kuching. Eventhough a bit tired to climb, but it promise you a very superb view once reach the cave.

If you grew up reading Chinese folk tales like Journey to the West or the Eight Immortals Crossing The Sea like I did, then perhaps you'd feel like you've been transported into the setting of these stories! There were many flights of stairs to get into the cave. Interesting experience!

I don't know about you, but I always imagine caves to be at, or below, ground level. Not so the fairy caves. It is a steep climb just to get to the entrance, which makes you wonder how the heck they were discovered in the first place! Fortunately you don't have to scramble up the cliff face as a huge...

After a steep but doable climb, there's a very large cavern with some interesting rock formations and a few paths through them, as well as places to sit down and enjoy the scenery. I had never spelunked before coming to Sarawak and was very impressed by the rocks and the sights, as well as the foliage that was growing in... More

a bit of stair climbing leads into a stunning cave room - lush, exotic, secretive. Great views from several angles (more stairs). Further into the cave there is tarantula, scorpion and lots of fruit bats. A fantastic cave to visit.

Entrance 5RM. Climb the external staircase to a not very exciting looking cave entrance which leads to stone and wooden steps sometimes in semi darkness. Then you are in the cavernous main chamber with more steps to climb to get alternate views and experience the vastness of the chamber. The main chamber is lit with natural light.

My first time going to a cave and this was very pretty! There's some light in the cave and plants around. Very pretty formations. Enjoyed exploring the cave, though it is not very big.

These caves are vast and have a lot of history. to get into the cave you must travel up lots of stairs.

RM1 for Malaysia citizens, RM5 for foreigners. Definitely prettier and better than Wind Cave. First of all, no torch needed as its quite bright inside. Secondly it's slightly cleaner and easier to walk around. You do need to climb some stairs to get to the entrance. It was rainy on the day we went, so climbing up the stairs and... More
