Explore the dark insides of this cave while immersing yourself in the sounds of Bat Cave. this cavernous structure. Remember to bring a torch to visit this cavernous structure, as very little natural light enters the cave and you will need one to make the most of the experience. The cave is a 20-minute walk from the city center, via a 2 km (1.2 mi) path through forest and rubber plantations. Be sure to bring plenty of water for the trek and wear sturdy shoes; walking the distance can get very hot.

  • walk from Lawang hill toward the bat cave about 25 minutes, after we arrive we will be able to smell that was overpowering and after the atmosphere inside is very beautiful 
  • excellent experience with guide Indira....little challenging trek in 2000 m long cave. spotted many bats, scorpion, frogs, siders and swallow birds 
  • ecolodge from the walk to the batcave done and although for the tour best deal is surely this was worth it.
