We have time to relax or enjoy one of our optional activities. After lunch, we make a 27 km overland journey to the Gomantong Cave. The cave is surrounded by primary rainforest, rich in fruiting wild figs which makes it an ideal place to spot orang utans in the wild. We'll spend our time exploring the cave and its surroundings until sunset, when you'll be overwhelmed by the exodus of over two million bats heading out for the night, swiftlets coming in to nest as well as raptors (eagles) swooping in and preying on the bats.
