The cave are quite impressive as well as their guests (bats). It is a marvel of nature, very big and worthwhile to be visited. Moreover there are several cave in the tour to be visited, please visit all you will find a real gems. Bring with you a torch in the park it is quite difficult to rent one (maybe... 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!

This cave is dark. You need a torchlight to see the walkway, the cave formations, the bird nests, and the bats in the cave. The walkway is wide and easy.

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
