Bring a torch and hat to cover your hat from bat pooh! Very slippery underfoot in places, so bring good footware.

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.

We took a 45mins drive from Kuching town to the Fairy Caves. Best to wear shoes with grip (Adidas kampung was the best shoes) as the cave is wet from water drippings and slippery. A few people wearing slippers slipped and fell. Bring a torch/headlamp...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.
