  • Disappointed with staff's service. Wrong reservation made for us. We made booking 1 week early, but staff put us at the wrong slot. So, we drove 2 hours from Bintulu for nothing.  more »

  • Great experience overall, majestic big natural caves, do note the high amounts of birds & bats droppings. Deeper caves could be slightly challenging for some. Very good trails though, 90% with wooden platform, just steep stairs in some areas.
  • An incredible gem only 90min drive from Miri. A bit difficult to get to, but absolutely worth every minute of time. The cave is enormous! Lots of breathtaking views inside and around the caves. A must-see if you visit Miri.
  • Worth the money! for locals only RM10/pax/entry. RM1 per trip to cross the river. about 1.5 hour journey by car from Miri. MUST bring/rent (RM5 each) torchlight as there are some area which very dark.
  • A very good place to enjoy the wonders of nature...limestone in particular. Any arrival after 3.30PM they will not allow to enter as the last boat service is at 7.30PM. Walk slowly along the path that leads to the caves and you should be able to see wildlife.
  • Beyond imagination of lives before million years. Good to go during weekends or public holidays. During working days we might find 3 to 4 visitors. Do visit at museum across the river.
