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.

  • 這是我第一次進去這麼大一個蝙蝠洞 入口會有人要帶你進去 一次收費要兩萬五 整趟路程不長 但是裡面很漂亮 有一種仙境的感覺 
  • Good place to kill a few hours if you are looking for something to do. There are local guided at the entrance that will take you in for 25000r. They provided a torch for me that was definitely needed....  more »
  • Amazing cave with lots of climbing. This was so much fun. But do not forget a torch! You will see many bats hanging and flying around.
