Having done an adventure cave tour just a couple of days before, coming to the Wind Caves by ourselves was quite unspectacular in comparison. It is built for tourists with walkways and information boards, quite like a museum exhibit. There are 3 short pathways and you will need a light to see. The cave is small and doesn't take long...

Big cave and is very dark inside. Definitely must bring torch in there. Can see bat which is smaller species. Some hole has small bird nest. Just that we did not feel any wind in there. The name seems not match with the cave. Very hot.

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 :-)
