One of limestone outcrops 17km from the resort. There are 3 other caves nearby namely Gua Kepayang Kecil, Gua Daun Menari and Gua Luas. Limestone is originally laid down beneath the sea as an accretion of fine material principally derived from shells and corals. Under intense pressure these sediments become rock, and with uplift of the land the limestone is subject to erosive forces of wind, rain and streams. These caves are home to bats, swiftlets, snakes, toads,cockroaches, spiders, centipedes. In spite of this, or because of it, some people like to explorer caves, and Taman Negara offers some outstanding opportunities.
