It took RM4.50 from Kuching town to Bau town and RM1.00 from Bau town to a junction from wind cave. One need to walk for 300m from the entrance. Taxi will be a better option if more people travel from the town. Personally, I felt that the taxi in Kuching is overpriced. It is a dark cave of fruit bats.... More

Really dark with bats hanging off the cave ceiling, making noises and birds nesting in there with chicks! Water dripping from the cave ceiling in some section and an underground river flowing out to join a river outside the cave. Fascinating!

We found this cave extremely dark and quite frankly, boring, in comparison to Fairy Caves- which is close by and much more impressive. The Wind Caves have a number of tunnels which take you throughout the caves, but there is very little to see except darkness and little teeny bats which click to the rock face. I'm sure if you...

An interesting cave. Lots of bats and stuff. Plaques along the paths so you can do some learning. Since this is 5 min away from Fairy caves, if you go to one, you will likely go to both. I suggest doing this one first, because it is a cool cave, but compared to fairy cave it is very underwhelming. Tip:... More

You probably don't need a guide to take you there although the guide could help you navigate the cave better. Be ready to bring a torchlight/flashlight to get around even with the several lights placed inside the cave.

A nice walk "indoors", with hundreds of little bats hanging and flying around. Take a strong flashlight or rent one at the entry. You can walk here from the town of Bau.

After a bike ride tour from Paradesa Borneo we swing by the Wind Caves - it's small - not bad, interesting with walk way. If you want to explore more on caves I would suggest Mulu Nat Park, Can blow your mind away. This cave is small to start - so not bad at all. Best to combine bike ride... More

Not the greatest. There are a lot of tiny bats in the caves which is cool but that's about it. We had a driver so was easy to get to for us, but I don't think they would be very accessible by public transport. Definitely choose the fairy caves over these if you are pressed for time.

My wife and I visited the Wind Caves as part of the biking tour with Paradesa. We were guided by our excellent tour guide Nizam. It is located about 45mins from Kuching town. Nizam met us at our hotel and drove us to the parking spot at Tasik Biru, with bikes strapped to the top of the car. It was... More

Maybe not as stunning to see as the Fairy Cave was, but interesting nonetheless, and great to see all the bats inside the cave. Some very impressive rock formations too. Make sure you take along torches - yo will need them.
