“Big steps for little fairy feet”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Incredible cave that glowed as if really magical with luminous green ferns, water droplets that looked like diamonds falling down from the ceiling, and all sorts of shapes swirling about in the rock. You need a torch to get up the stairwell which was fairly secure - we managed to get our 6 year old up and down it and carry our 2 year old too - but once in the cave the light streams through an opening in the cliff face. The steps are concreted so safe for kids too though a little slippery in parts so don't let them explore on their own. But an amazing place!

Unfortunately I did not see the cave since we showed up after it had already closed for the day. The man working there told us that AS OF MARCH 15, 2014 THE CAVE CLOSES AT 4:00 PM DAILY! It used to stay open until 5:30 pm. I hope this information helps.

“an indiana jones moment”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

From the moment we got to the caves and saw the steps we had to climb to just get to the cave opening this had all the marks of an adventure. Having climbed the concrete steps you are then faced with another set leading steeply up into the front of the cave. The first view is amazing. It only gets better as you climb higher into the cave. The bats are squealing overhead and all the fern plants are turned towards the light at the entrance. Real film set stuff. You can walk deeper into the cave network but if like me you aren't keen on tunnels and pitch darkness it was still a great experience in the first cave. Take a good torch.

We went to the Wind Cave first, which I personally wasn't a big fan. The fairy cave however was worth the second trip as it's one of the most magical places I have been in. No pictures could justify the magnificent space and the formation that exists.

I would recommend to get a taxi from Bau town, as we went by bus and had to walk quite a distance from the drop off to the caves and it was a very hot day. Also make sure you have good grips as it can be quite slippery inside.

We rented a car and drove here after visiting the Wind Caves. Both are worth a trip as they are very different. We had the place to ourselves as it was a rainy Friday morning so was even better as we were free to check out the acoustics of the place! It's a beautiful cave and a great place to visit, especially if you rent a car. (However, don't go if you do not like a lot of steps...)
