Do bring along a torch light as you will need it. Overall... More

I gave this attraction 5 stars solely based on the bats. Where I am from, we don’t see many of them. So, if bats are not exciting for you, you can skip this attraction. The views of the caves is nothing extraordinary and are not awe inspiring like the Fairy Cave. After paying the entry fee, I recommend renting a... More

These caves are quite near the larger Fairy Caves. However, whilst less dramatic in scale, the Wind Caves have many more bats. It was a great experience to see literally thousands of bats hanging from the roof of the cave. For me, it was a really interesting experience. A quick tip...throughout the rainy season, November to February, the caves are... More

take a public bus from Kuching to Bau (4.5RM) and another public bus to the cave or ask for a lift. The entry is 5RM and you will need a torch, there is plenty to see and lots and lots of bats.

The entrance fee is rm1 (for Malaysian). Be careful with your steps once you enter the cave. It would be better if you have your own torch because it was totally dark inside. 😁. Overall, it was good.

The place looked creepy. No maintenance after the rock falling. And, it is close down when i went there on 17/12/2016. Nothing interesting here except the waterfall. We unable to go inside the cave because it is locked out.
