Proud of sarawakian. Must visit whenever come to Sarawak. See the ancient cave and the culture. Need stamina.

My local host took me to this cave and another. At the time it was very busy with a first ever triathlon being run which was fun to watch. Needs some upkeep as many of the steps/walkways are broken but a nice adventure.

Slippery hike, but nice caves with fairytale lighting. Bring sturdy shoes in the rainy season and read up on the formations!

It is massive inside. You climb up steps and quite steep ones and end up in a huge cavern. The scale is breathtaking and well worth the time taken.

I ranked this cave a 4 instead of 5 just because it is not that large. Please note that you enter by many stairs, so must have a decent fitness level. The cave is a bit out of the city so you will need transportation....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.
