Definately looks like a fairy cave. Plenty of stairs to walk up to the top but definately well worth it. Kids enjoyed it too

Be prepared to climb a four storey set of steps to enter and watch your footing inside. No flip flops! It is worth the effort to visit these caves

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!

This is an awe inspiring place. The main central cave is huge. I've been to some caves in the UK but the size of this one dominates anything else I've seen. It was RM5 per person (non-Malaysian) to enter so the price was very reasonable....More

I would recommend not to bring old folks and very young children along. Also, wearing slippers into the cave can be dangerous, it’s best to wear sport shoes. This is a beautiful cave yet, it requires a lot of climbing . The place can be...More

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.
