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

Like its neighbor the Fairy Cave, this one does not fair any better. Broken electrical appliances, loose wooden pathway etc are not repaired. Zero effort is raised by the Management to promote its educational & environmental uniqueness in regards the limestone cave & its inhabitants. Rather disappointed really...

Potentially a fabulous trip to an outstanding enormous natural cave. I think there were lots of smaller caves leading off the main one, but with no guide, no torches, and no information, it was hard to get much out of the visit. They could do so much with this, if properly run. Even though it was midday, none of the... More

As well as seeing the fairy caves (highly recommend) my partner and I also visited this cave as part of our tour through Borneo Explorations. It was very dark so you will need a torch and due to the water flowing under the bridge there are a lot of Mosquitos so put on some insect repellent. There are a lot... More

Please don't waste time to go here, as other reviewers stated, it is just a dark cave with lots of bats and nothing to see. I was petrified that a bat would touch me and couldn't wait to get out of there. Plus, you have to pay an entry fee here which is a waste of money Instead, see Fairy... More

We went to Wind Caves as part of a tour package from Damai Beach hotel. The tour guide's English language capacity left a lot to be desired, but it was still an interesting and productive tour. Bring a POWERFUL headlamp flashlight (aka "torch") - a camera flash or cellphone camera flash is not sufficient enough to illuminate the area for... More

The caves were probably just okay. They aren't that big and so don't take that long to walk through. However they are full of bats and a few fossils here and there which is interesting. If you are close by, I'd recommend stopping in but wouldnt necessarily go out of your way.
