WANG BULUH CAVE GEOSITE
Wang Buloh Cave is located about 150 m above sea level in the northern part of Tuba Island. This cave was formed in the Setul limestone of the Ordovician- Devonian period (490-390 million years ago). This cave is one of the most beautiful caves in Langkawi with various cave structures (speleothems) that are well preserved. The cave comprises several chambers on two levels, each with various stalactites, stalagmites, pillars, curtains and flowstones. The trail to this cave takes about 45 min through the limestone habitat.
The Whistling stone magpie (Myophonus caeruleus; Family Muscicapidae) is often seen in the cave. This bird has a habit of bringing food, such as snails into the cave to knock the shells and eat its contents. Before reaching the cave, there is a limestone cliff inhabited by honey bee colonies. Several skilled villagers take high risk to harvest this honey for subsistence.
