Fairy Caves, Kuching

4.2
#1 of 7 in Nature in Kuching
To enter the spooky underground world of Fairy Caves you have to navigate a cramped passage and climb some steep stairs. Once inside, look for interesting rock formations, including one that resembles a human throat and uvula, and another that looks like a statue of Quanyin, the goddess of mercy. A thin layer of plants--fed by the guano-enriched soil--clings to the wall of the cavern, creating an unusual look rarely seen in other caves. The makers of the guano hang from the ceiling and flit about the cave.

  • Bau from Kuching was about 1 hour and 15 minutes in addition to the move from there is required. Enters the cave, at the entrance and stairs quite high up there. Further up in the cave. No light in the cave, so bring a torch is required.

  • These caves a well worth a visit They have a large and very green entrance which makes the front very light Watch your step as the path can be very greasy  more »
  • Went with a driver to see this cave. Amazing place, but only 4 stars because of the poorly maintained stairways and paths. After rain it was extremely wet and slippery and a bit scary at times. But do...  more »

  • Cheap admission for local. Beautiful. Steps a bit high but durable. No need fancy gears. Proper grip shoes for hiking are highly recommended but not a must. Great view and short trip for leisure
  • Once you're up there :) it's spectacular. There will be places that's slippery, water dripping from above and you might get some mud on your long pants and shoes. You will need to climb a flight of stairs. Bring a camera for those who likes nature or photography enthusiasts.
  • Some trail was close for maintenance. Bring own touch light for cave tracking. Wear non slipped shoe or boots.
  • Had an enjoyable experience during my visit there last year. Amazing stones formations. Beautiful place to visit. Unfortunately due to my phobia for height I didn't go inside the cave. However, my daughter went in and according to her it was awesome. Magnificent sight though at some parts the ground could be quite slippery so watch your steps.
  • A lovely place to be at. Hike up with the stairs and reach the top. Certain paths are dark. Advised to have some torchlight. The view at the top is beautiful.
