exploring fairy cave (borneo)


Fairy Cave is a large natural cave near the village of Bau, about 35 Km SW of Kuching (Borneo).­

This is a long-exposure photo (> 2 min) taken in the deeper part of the cave.­ The passage continues for about 200m toward the NW and reaches another exit with a nice canopy platform, at the top-end of a shaky wooden stairs (with a few missing steps).­ You need a flashlight if you want to explore the entire cave and go to this other exit.­
