Fairy and Wind CavesTour Code: KCH6
Duration - 4-6 hours
The limestone hills surrounding Kuching offer a fine selection of caves, and among them is the "Fairy" Cave, located about 8km South of the town of Bau, in the Kuching division, and about 40km from the city of Kuching itself. Bau is a gold mining town and lies about a one hour drive from Kuching. Fairy Cave has interesting rock formations, some resembling figures and animals. The cave has long been frequented by the Chinese living in the area, who come to pray at the cave formations, and who believe these formations are representations of "spirit beings", and thus gave the cave its name. Many shrines and altars are to be found in the cave.
Just a few minutes drive away is "Cave Of The Wind", a very popular local tourist destination. The cave derived its name from the draft of air, which passes through the passage leading to the Sungai Sarawak Kanan, on which it is situated. The most popular attraction is the Western entrance of the cave, which has a small beach adjacent to the Sarawak River. Explore the cave with your guide on the boardwalk and experience the thrill of walking in the dark. After visiting the cave you can take a cooling swim in the river and relax.
Return to Kuching in the afternoon. (Packed lunch included)
Note: Torches are needed to enter the caves and explore its passages.
