Only 5rm entry fee which is super awesome, the entrance is daunting in a tomb raiderish style staircase leading into a smaller series of steep steps fully going in to the actual cave. My God it opens up! It's incredible inside, really lovely and beautiful...More

Fancy having to climb 4 flights of stairs to get into a cave? Then head to fairy caves. It's quite far from Kuching town. Quite in the middle of nowhere. At the end of a dead end road facing a paddy field is a hill....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...More

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...More

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