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

A good place to go after seeing the Orang-Outang! Some steps to climb, but impressive view of the cave with natural light and beautiful vegetation. A bit dangerous for someone not strong on his legs, slippery, make sure to wear good shoes. We did not go through the darker area as we did not bring flash lights.

For the first timer, it is worth it, only rm1 per entry. Very cool and refreshing inside. I think the monastery can extend the visitor's path so that more beautiful scenery can be seen inside the cave. Please wear shoes since it is quite wet inside.

You need a touch and a good level of fitness. Pretty warm once your in there so we're light clothes. Be careful of the stone/steps as can be quite slippy.

This is on the main chamber itself. Nice but needs more information about the cave. No history involved or stated clearly. Directions and view point? But on the other hand, adventure caving here is awesome. I'd prefer to do it in smaller groups.

That is what I felt it as a time waste, poorly organized, poorly lit with no toilet facility for the visitors
