I visited fairy caves before wind caves and have to say that I prefer wind caves. It is very dark, no lights, so bring a flashlight with you (there are some there to rent). The walkway can be slippery but does have reflective tape on it, so it is easy to follow. There are a ton of bats in there,... More

We visited the wind cave and fairy cave on the same outing as they are close together. The wind cave is a dark cave and a torchlight is needed to negotiate it. You can hire one of these at the ticket office. The boardwalk throughout the cave is in good condition with reflectors along the edges. It gets pretty warm... More

Not as good as the fairy cave, but a good juxtaposition. Its fairly dark inside, and loads of bats. Theres a small rainforest walk outside the cave. Ok, but not brilliant.

The lights were not working that day according to our taxi driver. Such a waste as the caves were immersed in a shroud of darkness impossible to penetrate with torchlights. Photography was a waste of time as its too big a cave for flash photography. The caves in Jeju island were less interesting better better illuminated. The tourism authorities are... More

Take a head torch, it is very dark inside! Wear sensible shoes as is slippery underfoot. The rails are covered in bat poo, so you might want to take some gloves. 5 ringgit to enter. However it was an interesting walk right the way through the large caves, with lots of information points along the way. There are lots of... More

Love caves so I guess I'm biased, but the walk was great and the hidden swimming hole which the locals access was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

If you want to be surprised and looking for something interesting to do for a couple of hours. Really recommend a visit to this incredibly beautiful cavern. It's not closed in so you don't feel claustrophobic , but the immense size is intimidating and intensely awe inspiring. A bit of stair climbing is involved and a torch is also a... More

This cave is filled with many bats and plenty of walking routes to cover. In just an hour, or there abouts, we covered them all and thoroughly enjoyed learning about the bats and the caves structures, through our tour guide and the the signs dotted along the trails. If visiting the caves you definitely need a bright torch. It is... More

This is my preferred cave. The walks are mainly flat and it's fascinating to see all the bats amongst other things. Doesn't take long to explore and a visit should be couple with one of the other attractions near by. Fairy Caves, Semenggoh or Jongs.

We rented a car and went here before visiting the fairy caves one rainy Thursday morning. We had the caves to ourselves which was nice. Entry was RM5 which was good and we were able to rent a torch for RM3. There are nice walkways through the cave and many, many bats hanging on the ceiling. We really enjoyed it... More
