I thought a cave was a cave but this one was unique. We just flagged down a taxi in Kuching and told him we wanted to see Fairy Caves, Wind Caves, GUNUNG GADING NATIONAL PARK to see the Rafflesia flower. Worked out cheaper than a tour.

The Cave is worth visiting. However, do plan ahead before going there as it is about an hour away from Kuching City. We drove so we had the flexibility to leave as soon as we were done. If you are taking the bus, I would assume you would need further coordination. Please allow me to give you a few safe... More

Make sure to bring your own water because it could be tiring to climb all the stairs :) not to forget. Throw the rubbish responsibly into the bin provided within the cave. Bring torch and be careful with your steps! Enjoy your trip here! It was splendid. If you loves caves, that would be awesome! there's a viewing platform if... More

The cave is accessible by stairs! These stairs are an easy climb! Very picturesque! The sight of natural light shining through on the mossy cave walls alone makes it worth the climb! A very short trip will be fine. The inner parts of the cave has been blocked off for maintenance for quite some time, hence is not available to... More

5 RM for foreigners. Loads of stairs but worth it. Really beautiful inside. We hired a scooter at 40MYR for the day and did the Wind & Fairy caves and the Semengogh reserve - well worth it. The caves would be difficult to reach via local bus. Toilets and cafe at the bottom.

A nice place if you're looking to go for off the beaten path Only about 30 mins drive from Town and with good places like that , this place is fun and nice. Dark and a bit slippery as the time we went was after the morning and overnight rain.

There's nothing much to say other than the amazing views in the caves. I assume it would be difficult for those with knee problems due to the steep stairs. The cave is close to the Wind Caves so you can visit both at once. The only negative comment I could think of is the small bits of rubbish like candy... More

Travelled about 45 mins from hotel in town. Climbing up the stairs to the mouth of the cave took some time with my 69yrs mom but she managed it well. Took a 10 mins breather at the mouth of the cave before climbing up into the cave. Must have a good torch light and ready to get wet a bit.... More

It is a bit of a climb up into the cave, but it really is worth it. Magnificent views across the valley. Try to coincide your visit with the Wind Cave which is only a few minutes drive away.
