Fairy Caves, Kuching

4.2
#1 of 6 in Nature in Kuching
Cave Nature / Park
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 was a lot of fun and the caves are not too far from kuching by car. Make sure to wear good walking shoes as some parts are slippery and without steps. Amazing stalactites and stalagmites.  more »

  • We have kids with age 5, 6 and 8, climbing to the cave is acceptable challenge. Just watch out for slippery steps and bring your torch light (or handphone flash light will do) as some of the area will be dark. No attendant and proper instructive sign inside, so you can only follow the steps and mind your own safety. According to a private guide whi bring his customers here, some of the area is closed but the sign had been removed. So, please do not explore dark area deep inside the cave after reach the top or there are safety hazard. The entrance fee is cheap but we expect some basic safety like putting up a proper signage. Toilet and wash basin with hand soap is good as we need to clean our hand after holding the railing with bat droppings. The scenery inside cave make the visit worthwhile.
  • Very nice, photogenic, can actually explore cave without flashlight or even using cellphone light. Steep steps, but there are railings.
  • A good workout to climb the staircase, but the view and experience is worth it.
  • Beautiful cave, but the stairs abit slippery, have to be careful.
  • The place is amazing! Big, bright and beautiful. If you are like me, love caves but hate its darkness, this can be your first step. Usage of torch light is at minimal in its main chamber. Good luck in finding a fairy in the cave. But do beware of low ceilings, steep staircase, slippery surfaces and loose stepping stones. Kindly be reminded to train your stamina a bit before going here since it required a lot of climbing slippery staircase.

Where to stay in Kuching

The most popular area to stay in Kuching remains just south of the Sarawak River, where you can find affordable hotels offering basic but comfortable rooms. South of Jalan Main Bazaar, budget backpacker accommodations in the form of hostels and guesthouses draw many visitors with limited means. Consider the districts north of the river for more exclusive and resort-style alternatives.
