This acclaimed caving expedition is for everyone! The cave is huge, the chambers are incredible, and the calcite is beautiful. This is not a show cave and is rarely visited by anyone else apart from birds nest collectors.
Pick up from hotel in Kuching city at 8:45 AM and drive for about 1.5 hours to a Bidayuh village in a pretty farming valley. Once the equipment and safety briefings are completed, there is a 10 minutes walk across some of the area’s prettiest farmland to the staircase to the cave entrance. Once in the cave, there will be a briefing on its history and pre-history as you look at the cave paintings that cover the walls. Then head deeper inside the cave. Ceilings in this cave can be as high as 100 metre and there are streams, waterfalls and enormous calcite structures to admire as well as a wide range of cave dwellers. The easy route visits two chambers before leaving through the main exit. The intermediate route goes much further into the cave including passing through to the bird nest chamber before we retrace our steps. We enter a second cave in a clear refreshing river. Swimming is possible but not essential. After a short climb, we return to the river for a further 50 metre and into a magical chamber which is the end of the route. After cleaning up, a meal is provided either in the Kampung (village) or at a restaurant on the way back to Kuching. Return to hotel at 7:00 PM.
