I think they dine on fruits. And they are very small. I think they are much smaller than the bats seen at the end of Contagion. And close, hanging from the roof. Upon being waken by the flashes, they will usually fly off, disturbed from their slumber. And I cannot tell whether they have rabies since I wasn't bitten. There... More

Wind Cave and Fairy Cave are both situated near the town of Bau, south of Kuching. By car it takes about one hour to get there. Both cave are natural gems, Wind cave housing numerous bats of diverse species. Worthwhile the trip. Fairy cave is even more attractive, by its sheer measures and the fairy like light coming through the... More

If you like nature and hear and feel the bats, it is the place for you to explore. You will need a torch light and good boots to explore inside the cave as the tunnels are all dark when you go deeper in. The footpaths are well built but you need to be careful as it is all dark inside... More

It's pitch black! That's why it's still a habitat for the bats. You could smell bat poos & hear their sound in the cave. It's fascinating! Not much to see for us when we were only watching our steps with our weak torch lights. Recommended to bring the brighter ones instead of renting from the counter, if you want to... More

Easily accessible caves. Very dark with lots of bats. I can't help feeling we were rushed through this area by our guide. There were a couple of different paths he told us to take as they were closed. So we ended up wandering along one walkway for about 100m to the end then back out through a different exit. Lots...

The very dark wind caves were bit scary to begin with. Place was not well managed. But overall a new good experience of seeing a natural cave with some authentic flora and fauna. Plus it was extremely dark which may b thrilling for some people.

If you want to see a lot of bats, come here. If you're seeing the far superior Fairy Caves, also worth stopping by. Don't come and see these without checking out the Fairy Caves. Did I mention the Fairy Caves?

I find Wind Caves is more attractive compared to Fairy Caves, you can see many wild bats, swallows inside the caves. Do remember to bring along a torch light as it is very dark inside, without any lamp post. Try to turn off all the lights at the middle of walk, immerse yourself in the darkness that you can't even... More
