This cave is nicer than the wind caves the suroundings are less nice, but you hve a great view from one piont over the landscape. These in these caves you have a lot of steep stairs, not good when you have bad knies . There are quiet a few big stalagmites and stalagtides here. Torch is not neccecery, but handy.

The Fairy Caves are so underrated. I would suggest renting a motor bike or a car for a fraction of the price to schedule a tour. You just need the equivalent driver's license from your native country. An international driver's license is not necessary. The cave is very easy to get to. There is a short portion where you will...

This is not your average cave. Numerous plants are present, creating a beautiful scenery, indeed somewhat like a scene from The Lord of the rings. Entrance fee is very low, however you have to cover some distance from Kuching. You have to climb quite a few (slippery) steps so wear appropriate shoes and bring a flashlight. We visited the cave...

Amazing cave structure, really deep system, with its own river system inside. apparently there are sections unexplored. Worth every bit of the day out!

A good hiking experience for the old and young. The infrastructure like staircases, and walk path is quite complete. It is more suitable and relaxing than wind cave for the old and young as the infrastructure is more complete and it is bright inside the cave.

About an hour out of Kuching and quite a nice cave without being spectacular. Access involves a very steep climb up sometimes very steep stairs. You will need a reasonable degree of fitness. No lighting on the way up so bring a torch. Be careful if it has been raining as it will be very slippery. Once at the top... More

Overall pleasant experience. I enjoyed looking at some of the plants growing in there. The best sighting would likely be the light pouring into the cave from an opening at the top. Some of the formations on the top can look rather interesting. One looked like a winged dragon ready to plunge down. TIPS: Be mindful of the steps as... More

We hesitated before we climb the stairs towards the entrance of the cave. With 3 senior citizens, it can be quite a challenge but surprisingly they made it to the inner part of the cave. The view within the cave is a complete breath taking. If you decide to take a peak, please ensure you wear a pair of shoes... More

The entrance fees are quite cheap, RM1 for Malaysian & RM2 for foreigners. There are many staircase to climb, not suitable if you bring infant or old people. Not much to see inside, wind cave looks more attractive
