We did this by taxi with the Fairy caves. almost no lighting so take a torch or use your phone light. 1000's of nesting bats and great rock formations. easy flat access on good raised wooden walk ways.

Fairy Cave much nicer...would go back to Fairy Cave which is 10 minutes away. Too much bat guano on the handrails for me. But good informational plaques. But they should clean the... More

A nice walk into the dark, leading to external lights... A good cave for the new cave explorers... A good start to learn about features of caves as they are good sign boards explaining the features.

The fairy cave is stunning, and you'll see what I mean when you peer from the inside out up at the azure sky. Like something from Indiana Jones or Tomb Raider. If I was one of those 'spiritual' twonks I could definitely spend a few hours 'discovering' myself, or whatever. The Wind cave is just as interesting but less mind-blowing... More

After visiting the Fairy caves, I visited to wind caves. The tour route isn't that great (do take a head torch) and i was not particularly impressed

There's nothing much in there but lots of bats and lots of bat poops. Do bring your own torch light or even rent from the booth. A great opportunity to look at bats and the cave.

very cheap entrance fee, properly built trek with stairs, so it is suitable for all ages and fitness level. you can rent torchlight there for Rm 4, so it's okay if you forget to bring it. it's really dark inside, so make sure you bring your lights with you.

Here you can see a big colony of bats that are really cute; in the caves it's necessary to bring torches because it's really dark. The public transports to get there are not good coordinated, and there is little help there if you need a taxi. in the end we paid the park keeper to bring us to the next... More

Never tried doing caving before. And the cave are wide and vast! Torchlight are a must as theres no light in the caves. Have to be careful inside apart from the darkness, theres steps and the planks are slippery. But nevertheless, its a good experience!
