Location is about a hour drive from Kuching, depending on the traffic. With little fee, the cave is worth a visit. First, you need to claim a six flight stair, unless you are weak in knee, it is actually not difficult. However, once you step...More

The Fairy Cave is harder to reach,but is more scenic. The wind cave has micro bats is is not a photo friendly area.
