Fairy Caves, Kuching

(4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Fairy Caves on your holiday in Kuching, and find out what else Kuching has to offer, use our Kuching itinerary builder.

  • This cave is really very beautiful! First you climb a set of stairs in the cave before you can. The first part is also really magical. If you're lucky you'll see animals like snakes and scorpions. We saw a Tarantula and a "centipod".

  • Beautiful caves and a must visit when in Kuching. The climb to the top and the view from the platform is stunning. The hike up and through the narrow openings once in the cave can be a little daunting but definitely worth the experience.
