  • Great experience overall, majestic big natural caves, do note the high amounts of birds & bats droppings. Deeper caves could be slightly challenging for some. Very good trails though, 90% with wooden platform, just steep stairs in some areas.
  • An incredible gem only 90min drive from Miri. A bit difficult to get to, but absolutely worth every minute of time. The cave is enormous! Lots of breathtaking views inside and around the caves. A must-see if you visit Miri.
