Wind Caves, Kuching

3.4
#4 of 6 in Nature in Kuching
Cave Nature / Park
Grab on to your flashlight as you navigate the dark caverns of Wind Caves, where only the movement of air and the occasional bat chirps break the profound silence. Reflective strips guide you through the caverns as you observe the natural formations and a large family of bats nesting there. Learn about the cave's features by reading the many museum-like information boards, or ask a tour guide to talk you through this underground world. Bring a helmet or sturdy hat to protect your head from the imminent bat droppings. Work out when and for how long to visit Wind Caves and other Kuching attractions using our handy Kuching trip itinerary maker.

  • A very relaxing trip as compared to Fairy Caves. Please bring along a good torch as the passages are pitch dark. If you have allergies to bat droppings, either bring along some plastic gloves as the railings are full of them. You will get to see bats and swiflets resting in the caves, fossils of insects on the rock form, stalactite and staglamites.
  • The place is too dark. No lighting provided. Only natural light available at certain areas. The handrail not clean of bat droppings. When you hold the hand rail for support when going down the stairs, be prepared to clean with your mineral water.
  • Wonderful place to explore. Must see place and you can rent a torch light here as the caves are dark.
  • Enjoy awesome view inside cave with only rm1 entering fees , remember to bring torch light as there is very dark inside
  • Amazing caves and the small river next to it, good place to have a cool dip in the river during the hot season, lots of cicada music

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.
