Type: Adventure
Owner description: Real caving for everybody! Easy, intermediate and technical day trips through fabulous, deserted caves. Educational too - we run presentations on local geology and archaeology. We can supply you with all equipment and protective clothing - bring a towel and T-shirt. Dangerous? No! We have an excellent safety record which makes Kuching Caving as safe as shopping. "The best thing we did in Kuching" is the reaction from most of our guests. Western managed. Established 2007.

My partner and I went caving with Kuching Caving. I'm a bit of a whimp but James supported me through the scary bits and I still got to see everything. I highly recommend this trip and look forward to visiting again in the future.

We did the Trinngus and night photography tours with James. Both were superb and highlights of our 3 weeks in Sarawak. James is very knowledgable about everything Sarawak and we learned more from him than from any guide books. He is good friends with many of the indigenous people in the villages we visited and we had a chance to... More

My first time to Sarawak, James and Paul feed us some knowledge about the places that we are going to visit at the beginning. Then the tour start, first time in my life to see so many bats in Wind cave. After that we went to the gold mine but unfortunately all gold has gone, nothing left behind... Another first... More

I'm really sorry abut the gold Stef. I put some there the day before for you to find but it had gone by the time we got there - you just cant trust the snakes you know! Thanks to you and all the family for coming and for writing a kind review. And good luck with being an angel! More

This was my first experience caving, and I enjoyed it. It was unlike anything I've done before. The wildlife was amazing - bats, swiftlets, centipedes, snakes, and giant spiders. We did the "Big spaces, cool streams" trek, which included two caves in the same mountain. The first cave was a longer hike, taking around 3 hours, and the second cave... More

Thanks! I'm glad that you enjoyed it and sorry that I didn't get to meet you personally. You'll just have to come back! I agree with you about the food. We cant cover all of the special diets out there so we stick with piah for those who take wheat and nuts for those that don't! If this doesn't suit,... More

James and Paul were great! Made the experience very personal while also being knowledgable and professional. The caves were breathtaking and the views from different vantage points were stunning. My gf and I did lobang batu and survived, haha! The hike up and down the mountain is not to be taken lightly especially bc of the heat and humidity of... More

Thanks for the great review Clark. I was happy to read it as it means that you are both alive and able to communicate with the outside world after whatever revenges your girlfriend took on you!

Had a absolutely brilliant day, the hole trip was very interesting and informative, saw some amazing things, and did some very adventurous caving. Would definitely recogmend it!

Thanks Morgan, appreciated. The 'Hole' trip! I love it. One word for cave in Malay is 'Lobang' meaning 'hole' as in our latest product 'Lobang Batu' the rock hole. I hope to see you there next time you are in Kuching More

We did the Large spaces and cool streams package. It was very well organised by James and Paul. I personally found the first cave challenging and nearly didnt go into the second cave. However, I pushed through and it was definitely worth it, the two caves are very different and I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is... More

I have been to many caves in Malaysia - but for a real experience, this trip was the best. Going places few people get to see - very magical. Loved the cool water after the heat of Borneo. The guides are excellent and did everything they could to make the trip a special experience. One bit of advice - this... More
