Went today (30/11/2018) and when I arrived the guy said it's closed for the next month. Annoying especially given the ball ache with public transport to get there (as detailed below). Be aware that there are no buses from Bau to Krokong or the cave...More

The public transport in Malaysia is absolutely awful. Read online that the K2 bus comes every 20 minutes. Got to the bus station at about 10:30 and the bus didn't show up until 12:00, and then didn't leave until 12:15. The last bus back was...More

Suitable caves for beginner to explore. You don't have to be super fit to explore this cave. You just need to be a little adventurous. Proper trekking platform and staircases in and out of the caves. An awe caves

So many images can be seen. You have to open your eyes and be amaze on each rock you see. Each rock has its own image you can imagine.

I have visited other caves and I came with a low expectation. But to my surprise, this cave is as close to its original state-not touristy. Many interesting cracks and crevices to explore.

Well worth a visit if you have time to spend half a day from Kuching (about 1-1.5 hours away) - combine with the Wind Caves. We booked a guide from the city (Freddy) and he took us round both caves, giving us the history and...More

Coming from a heavy smoker who doesn't do much work out, I could easily explore the cave despite the stairs and a few hike ups. It was overall an easy and fun workout. However, it is pretty dark inside and can be slippery. So I...More

My apologies, I have no recommendations on scooter rental but it's a great idea. You will have flexibility to move around and see other places. It will save you time. Enjoy your trip!

The Fairy Cave is harder to reach,but is more scenic. The wind cave has micro bats is is not a photo friendly area.
