We drove from Kuching on a nice and dry day with a taxi to find both caves (Fairy cave and Wind cave) closed. A small paper at the entrance/office saying that they are closed because of flooding. So better call before you go there!

Cave is always filled with strong wind, feels cooling but usually with bats' leftover smells. Beside there's a river with BBQ facility.

It was a great place for nature lovers and families who want some adventures. However, it was very dark and the floor were slippery and uneven. You need to be careful and better bring an extra torch as rental fee for a torch is RM3.

As the cave was occupied by fruit bats and insect bats mostly, the cave was meant to be dark and humid. Smelly as the caves were filled with bat droppings BUT beautiful in its very own way. The entrance fee was RM1 and that visitors can rent a torch at the fees of RM3. The torch is necessary as the... More

Easy access and walkways through out, easier access than Fairy cave. A very unforgettable experience by walking through the dark cave with own torchlight. Can see many bats on the top of the cave, and unexpectedly found an egg of swallow in the bird nest!! Quite fun for this visit. Recommended for nature lover.

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
