I went to the windcave today with frens, actually having a BBQ gathering there. I been to that places several times but never had a chance to go inside the cave.

Lols finally today i manage to go. Some advice before you enter, bring flashlights, recommended a more powerful one. Its going to be pitch black inside the cave. 2nd thing is make sure you are wearing shoes, sport shoes with good anti slippery feature. Its wet inside. Then most important of all, do bring your camera and a Tripod !

As for entrance fee, adult will cost RM3.00 per person and RM1.50 for students/senior citizen/disabled. Children below 6 years old are allowed FREE entrance.

Make sure you bring your own flashlights, else you may need to rent it from them at i don't know how much.

This is the pic of the entrance

Whats there to see at Wind Cave. Well to be honest, nothing much really. When you're there, you just can't stop admiring nature's beauty.

Everyone should just visit this windcave at least once in their life. As you walk into the cave, you can hear sounds of water streams flowing through the rocks, and you can also hear water dripping. You won't be able to see them, Its pitch black like i mentioned earlier. Flashlights won't do you any good also unless you get a huge portable flurecent light.

You can see big stalactite and stalagmite all over the cave. There are also somewat huge uneven holes on top of the cave. Its nature stuff and I don't really bother to understand. I just admire them. Point your flashlight to the ceiling and you can see lots of reflective stuff. Those are BATS! YEs! BATS! all over the ceiling of the cave, hidden from daylights. Don't point the flash light too long though, they will shift they sleeping spot to avoid your flash lights. These are fruitbats so don't worry about them sucking your blood.

Watch your steps as you go, its slippery and there are steps. Slip and you might be sliding off with the bats droppings. Its all over the cave. don't touch the handle bar either. Its covered with bats' droppings, in another word, s.h.i.t

I took several scenic photos below. Those are the attractive good angle natural super duper fantastic shots... nah i wish. Unfortunatly, my canon s2 was not able to capture the view that I seen with my eyes. I need a DSLR camera.

After you finish walking through all the wooden bridges, you head back to where you came from, same entrance, same exit. and please, do not write your name on the wall. that is vandalising. if you do, the cave will collapse and you will never get out alive. Nah, jk. only thing that will happen is the bats will eat you alive.

Tourist can contact email me travel[@]catscity.com.my
for more transport and travel arrangements.

Fairy cave is wide and wind cave is long.
Fairy cave is kinda creepy in a way. the wind blows through the hollow cave creating a "hoOooOoOo' sound. =_=

will post a travelogue the next time i go there.

it is a nice place to visit. though not as big as niah cave, the beauty and wonder is really fascinating. I been there sometime in March. On the same day, I also went to fairy cave, which is less than 10 minutes drive from wind cave. Wind cave is more challenging as there is no proper wooden planks. It is free at that time.

I think you mean Fairy cave is more challenging. Fairy cave is the one that you need to climb to high up concrete stairs, then inside there are no wooden bridge and stuff.

Windcave is the one with less challenge. there are wooden bridge inside the cave guiding you to every corner and ends of the cave.
