Gomantong Caves Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 16 photos

This page is actually a part of my Sandakan page, where I write about my journey from Mount Kinabalu to Sukau, including my visit to the Gomantong Caves. But I've decided to put this little page up especially for the ones that are specifically searching for info about the Gomantong Caves.

I hope you will enjoy reading this page!
Please leave me a comment what you think about it! :-))

Please read this page in 'authors order' as I mostly write my pages not only as
separate tips, but with a story-line in it.

All the pictures on this travelpage are taken by me or by Åke (former VT-member Akeke), unless otherwise stated.
Please do not use any of them without permission.

    Hundreds of cockroaches flee away from your feet... hahaha its true I am glad they did, I am not a big fan of coach. I enjoy Sandakan & the orang utan and the seafood dinner. Come back to Sandakan & we can meet up in KL or in Sweden(Aug 2006).

    Wow, that sounds like a very special place! I know the type of cockroaches you mean and they are really impressive. Excellent page!

    I remember how awful it was inside the cave ! how terrible it must be to have the job of the guard and have to stay in that little hut in the middle, another wonderful page refreshing my memories

    WHY from me also - eeeks, I am afraid of all that crawls - I would have screamed the whole time.... A bit like this Indiana Jones movie :-)) But - tough girl you are, enduring this visit :-)
