Create an itinerary including Deer Cave
Deer Cave attracts thousands of visitors every year with its unique rock formations, including the one at its south entrance that resembles the profile of Abraham Lincoln. The cave was opened for public in 1984, and it was long regarded the world's largest cave passage. It is home to three million bats you can watch twirling and swarming outside the cave from the park's bat observatory. The walk to the cave through a tropical rainforest via a 3 km (1.9 mi) plank is an attraction in its own right.

  • Huge main chamber measuring 100m by 120m. Boardwalk all the way to the inner chambers. The Garden of Eden is currently closed to visitors but you can see it from the inner chamber.

  • Great to witness the bats leaving the cave at 5pm
  • If you are lucky enough, come after some rain and you will see the rainwater flowing down. What a spectacular view and what an amazing experience.
