Explore the beautiful Fairy Cave with its naturally unique rock formations and experience the fauna in the mysterious Wind Cave!
Approximately 40km away from the town of Kuching, lies two incredible limestone caves filled with history and wonder known as the Fairy Cave and the Wind Cave. The Fairy Cave took its name from a stalagmite structure near the entrance that is said to resemble the ‘Guan Yin’, the Goddess of Mercy in Chinese culture. Inside this giant cave, you will find natural formations of different coloured rock and rich green moss, together with the great contrasts between the entering light and shadowy darkness, offers beautiful opportunities for the avid photographer.
Just about 10 minutes away lies the Wind Cave, where a torchlight is essential for visitors to navigate through their man-made boardwalk into the cave. Deep within the darkness of the cave, plentiful of bats and swiftlets flock the area, making for an amazing auditory experience, as no lights are installed in this magnificent limestone cave to avoid disturbing the animals living here. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of nesting swiftlets on the cave walls, with the bird’s nest being considered a delicacy among the Asian community and fetches an expensive price!
