Real caving for everybody! Easy, intermediate and technical day trips...

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.

We have seen a number caves before in our life but the Gua Sireh and the Broken Jar cave was an awsome experience. We were picked up by James at our hotel in the morning in his 4WD. We drove to James' HQ at 10 Miles where we received a thorough introduction to the history and geology of the caves... More

James took myself and a friend through two caves with astounding ease. His local knowledge and scientific info added to the trip making it a special day indeed. He's constantly on the look out for any cool wildlife on the walls of the caves which is so cool. It is also great exercise as we walked over 2kms that day.

The 'Dropout' adventure with James and Rambli was amazing! Very exciting and enriching at the same time. We were 'repeat offenders' of Kuching Caving. This was the second time we been on an adventure with James as it was so much fun the first round! It just keep getting better. The 'Dropout' was educational. James and Rambli were such nature...

My boyfriend and I went for the "Big Spaces, Cool Streams" experience which was perfect given this was my first time caving. We are definitely coming back to try another cave next time we are in Kuching. The first cave is completely dry. We saw lots of snakes and animals in the first cave. Even for a first time caver,...

Many thanks to James and his team for an amazing experience. He found a 'new' cave that appeared to have had no prior 'visitors' - how great to see what others had not see before. A trip not to be missed.

We did a day adventure caving trip to Lobang Batu and I would highly recommend this if you are looking for outdoor activities to do in Kuching. It as fairly easy with a good hike to and from the caves. It does get quite slippery at points and requires a bit of maneuvering around jungles trails so be prepared. The... More

We did the 'big chambers cool streams' trip, and loved every minute of it. It's not the cheapest thing to do in Kuching, but for this money you get a full day of adventure, a very friendly local and expat guide and an expedition into one of the many caves around Kuching. There are no other tour groups and there... More

Spending the day with James was a fantastic experience. His knowledge of local history , plants and animals was amazing. From the moment he picked us up at 0815 hrs to being dropped back at our hotel at 1930 hrs was jammed packed with adventures. Lunch at Emma's was the wonderful .. the best Rendang ever! Thanks James

We had James as our guide and it was apparent from the beginning he was both knowledgable and passionate about what he did. The caves were magnificent and James was careful and diligent the whole time (I like to see snakes and spiders but not be bit). Safety and respect for the location and our surroundings were always top of... More

Honestly spending a day with James and Kuching Caving is worth the trip to this corner of Borneo! James is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about what he does - which makes the while experience of travelling 1000m into a cave even better! Capping off the day with dinner at a local restaurant where James is almost regarded as family... More
