Niah Cave - the dark and the painted

The story continues from yesterday's post. We were about to enter the darkest part of the cave. It is total darkness, ie, absence of light! We can't even see an inch in front of us without torch light.

The team was entering the descending staircase ...

I used my flash to snap a photo of the dark cave ...

One of the girls spotted this cricket on a metal bin...

Finally, we arrived at the exit. It has a rest area and a gateway to the painted cave. The painted cave is another 10 minutes walk away.

Look back into the dark cave ...

The painted cave! The painting is more or less gone!

The entrance of the painted cave.
By this I am now concluding this series of posts on Niah Cave. It is worthwhile going but do slow down and enjoy the surrounding. The cost is RM10 per adult, RM5 for student. The boat ride is RM1 each way for each person. There is group package, eg, group of 5 will cost RM30.
