  • The tour of caves is really cool. Lots of tiny creatures and history in the cave. I didn't mind paying to enter as it helps conserve the caves!
  • A conservation site, a dark bat-cave.. we'll experience a pitch black surrounding, with an educational guide. For a price, good job Malaysian Government! ^^
  • I've been on many cave tours, and this was one of the better ones due to the focus on the rare endemic species found in the cave. The tour guides also covered how rock formations are formed, but the arthropods and insects are the real stars of the show. They clearly care a great deal about conservation, which is refreshing.
  • Our guide was excellent. No photo because the best parts of the tour can't be photographed (too dark). If you are interested in nature and the world around you then don't miss it. Mass market tourists may be disappointed, beware - you may learn something!
  • Spectacular cave with beautiful rock formations. The entry price (MYR 35 for adults) included a 45 minute tour by a very knowledgeable guide, and took us 800m into the cave system. Parts of the cave system are in pitch darkness, with no external lighting, and other parts of the system are made visible by small openings at the roof of the cave system. There are stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over tens of millions of years, with beautiful colours reflecting their different mineral compositions. The breadth of wildlife within the cave system is very surprising, with over two hundred different species identified to date, with much of this ecosystem depending on the droppings left behind by two different species of bats that inhabit the caves. All in all, I would highly recommend the tour, as the guides are clearly knowledgeable about the ecosystem within the caves. The entrance fee goes toward research and protection of this system.
