Adventure, thrill and exploration are things that go together. The caves are vast, dark and smelly. There is bat and bird poop everywhere. The wooden board-walk to the cave and through the cave is extremely slippery. I underestimated how slippery the walk was so be prepared.
Be prepared as you'll need to pay a small entrance fee with foreigners paying extra compared to Malaysian locals with MYKAD. You will take a one-minute small motor powered boat ride across the crocodile infested water before going on a 1 hour long walk through the tall Borneo forest. Bring a raincoat as it could rain on the one hour walk to the site.
If you're lucky you can catch a monkey jumping from tree to tree. There are red millipedes along the walk feeding on the moss on the handrails. Also be careful for furry caterpillars along the railing as my friend accidentally touched one and ended up with blisters along his arm that lasted a week.
You'll catch bird nets with swiftlets and bats perched in their spots, and also the occasional rock wall painting if you look closely. The painted caves was closed when I went there and looks like it's been closed since March 2012.
