The cave is in Bau town, around 1 hour drive from Kuching. There is a stair way to reach the entrance of the cave, not difficult to climb. The cave is huge with many different shapes of rock formations and small plants.

Blown away. Really beautiful to reward the steep climb. We have a 6,3 and 10 month old children. We had the younger two in slings and the six year old boy walked and clambered. Steep drops though at times and tricky decent especially if heights are of concern. We loved this experience and would recommend greatly for people who like... More

This cave is incredible and goes back further than you think (although cordoned off quite early on). Some tips: Entrance to the caves is a bit off-road and hidden if you're planning on cycling/ getting public transport. We hired an uber driver for the morning (he would take us, wait for us there, take us to nearby wind caves, wait... More

We visited the cave with James from Kuching Offroad. We didn't only do the usual tourist trail but went beyond some areas that were not so easily accessible if you do not have a guide who could understand every nooks and corners, and safety too. It is highly recommended to go with Kuching Offroad if you are keen on caving.

Advised to wear comfortable shoes or sports shoes as you need to climb up stairs. Nice scenery to snap pics and chill a lil. One of the attraction in Bau.

If you happen to be in Kuching, this is a must visit place. The journey to the cave brings you through a narrow and steepe stair, and it can be physical challenging to some. But all the sweat and effort is truly worth it once you get yourself into the cave. I was just simply awestruck by the sheer size... More

Located in a very scenic area, these caves really are very atmospheric and have a fairytale quality to them. The photos don't really do justice to the reality. Home to bats and bugs, as well as nice rock formations. Near to the Wind Caves, where close up views of the wildlife are much easier, but the caves are less attractive.... More

For all cave lovers, the fairy caves offer an opportunity to experience varied aspects of a large cave, including fauna, creatures e.g. Bats, centipedes, spiders etc. and are large enough to spend atleast an hour in them exploring. A steep flight of steps lead to them and so not for the faint hearted or others not physicaaly fit.

I had been in many caves previously but never in one that had so much tropical vegetation. It reminded me of adventure movies like the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Our guide and expert caver James took us deeper into the chambers than most people venture. He pointed out many of the geological features and showed us the different kinds... More
