It's good experience when you are inside the cave, many to see and view. My son always thought that there are something abnormal living creatures inside it. When he saw the bats fly around, it's really fantastic view. You can hear a lot of sound in the caves and guess what is it. the formation of granite is great. The... More

well I still trying to work out why they are called wind caves, no wind at all, loads of mosquitos and bats, personally I would rename them bat caves as thousands of bats live there :-)

This is a series of long narrow caves...3 of them that you walk through with your own torch. Only takes about 40 min. many bats and they are noisy. there is also a ,lovely spot to swim in the river about 500m past the cave entrance

We took a bus from Kuching city to Bau using service 3. Leaving a 0740 hrs, we managed to catch the 0900 hrs service 3A to Wind Cave. The driver alighted us at the road junction and we hiked 300 m to the cave entrance. The path is well signed both inside and outside the cave. Make sure you have... More

Easy access and walkways through out. Bring a flashlight to see 1000's of golf ball size bats hanging from the walls and ceilings. Nothing to be scared of because they preferred to stay away from us.

We were really impressed with this cave system, the ceilings are low and there are thousands of bats around. There are a number of routes to follow, we had taken head torches and they were really useful. The river near the main car park was lovely to have a splash in. Word of warning - do not trust the tourist... More

The Wind Caves were OK,if you are in the area they are probably worth a visit but not worth a special trip....unless it is the wet season & then they would probably be quite spectacular. A torch is a necessity as are reasonable shoes.

Loved it. Small, uncommercialised, helpful friendly staff. Thousands of bats, six or seven species and hundreds of swiftlets, we found two species but there are probably more. We were not there at dusk but the mass evening evacuation must be spectacular.

I like the trees along the way to Wind Caves. The cave itself was dark inside and be cautious of your footstep. Do not forget to bring your torch light and wear sport shoe as it was quite slippery inside the cave. I saw bats inside the cave with its sound of inviting and welcoming us to the cave. Hahaha!
