What people are saying:

Gomantong Cave is located in the rainforest reserve of Gomantong Mountain in Sabah. It is staggered and it is very empty. However, for the convenience of tourists, a boardwalk about 90 meters high is built in the cave to collect bird’s nests and Visitors can watch the professional bird's nest collection process from February to August every year. There is no place for entertainment, pure viewing.

    Wildlife of a different kind

    Having read David Attenborough's autobiography and his description of the Gomantong cave, I wanted to go here. It certainly is amazing to see all the animals that make up the eco-system of the cave.
