First stop, Fairy Caves, where you’ll be met by a 3 storey high chamber opening. Explore the caves with a torchlight, and make your way to the main chamber where you can marvel at Stalacites and Stalagmites hanging tight from the cave ceilings. Look out for a formation deemed ‘The Goddess of Mercy”, three meters in height and resembling a women dressed in classical Chinese robes. Also another formation that looks like an old man crouching down. Wonder on to the Wind Cave, named for the constant cooling breeze that blows through it. Thread along the platform and find yourself in the midst of a dark-tunnel laced with bats and black-nest swiftlets, listen closely and you might hear them echo. Shimmy through conical cavities separated by blade-like pinnacles of limestone, limestone pendants hanging from the roof of the cave passage. After feeding your wanderlust, it’s time to feed your stomach. Lunch time. After lunch, get acquainted with the cheeky red-haired man of the forest, orangutans! Venture out into the Semenggoh Orang Utan Centre to meet these characteristic apes in their natural habitat. You will be able to spend some-time with the elusive creature during feeding time on the platform. Visitors are also given an opportunity to further understand how the facility works as a rehabilitation centre, where most of the Orang Utans are orphans rescued from illegal animal poaching and injuries. Orangutans always steal the spotlight, but, there are also other wildlife roaming the area. Keep an ear out for the songs of wild birds and rehabilitated gibbons. It is difficult to guarantee the wildlife sightings, as they are in a vast area, however it is a sanctuary for an array of animals like porcupines, crocodiles and river terrapins Back to your Kuching 3-Star Hotel.
