Just my personal opinion. Quite a rundown place but to be honest is very naturally. Was surprise that this cave do not have any place of worship in this cave. Most caves in Malaysia will have a temple inside but not this.

We had a half day trip to the Fairy and Wind Caves and really enjoyed this place (despite losing half our body weight through sweating!) The walk is not easy so be prepared for tight nooks and crannies as well as some slippery surfaces!

Entrance fee RM1.00, to rent a LED light RM4.00. We spent about half an hour there without a tour guide. the place looks old, dirty and horrendously, full with bats, smelly. The staircase is rusty, do not feel safe at all.
