Bat Cave & Ship Rock Tours
The bat cave is a hidden treasure and just a short walk aways sits the calm and peaceful Landak River where the towering Ship Rock is also located.
Have a spare morning or afternoon.... would like a to explore a little outside touristic Bukit Lawang, then a visit to the Bat Cave and Ship Rock is a must.... especially is you love nature and interested in caves and rocks formations!
The bat cave is located a couple of kilometers from Bukit Lawang, which can be reached by walking or by motorbike. The cave is a small cave system that tunnels through limestone rock and surrounded in forest. It gets its name from the fact that two species of bat live in the cave and can be seen hanging from the roof within 3 cave caverns. Another kilometer or so along sits the slow-flowing and tranquil landak river over-looking the mountains of the National Park. There are many stoney banks along the river to relax, swim, have a BBQ and take in the natural beauty of this place. With a new developed camping area at Nama Samah, which are the first couple of dwellings you get to, there may be some locals around and local tourists visiting, especially at weekends. However, take a further walk alongside the river and other visitors will sure find a spot where there is noone and it can be enjoyed in complete peace. Just back from Landak River is the locally famous Ship Rock (Batu Kapal), a huge rock formation and cave system. The over-hanging rock looks like the front of a ship, which is where it gets its name.
If you have a spare day, then this is definitely worth a visit. Whether its a quick visit to see the Bat Cave or prefer to take some time out relaxing and enjoying a BBQ by Landak River. Take a look below. If you prefer something a bit more adventurous, take a look at our Adventure Trek.
