Packing List for Visiting Gomantong Cave
Luggage and bags: Try not to have too much to carry as the walkway is slippery and you need your balance.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wellington boots or boots that protect your feet from the slimy poo on the floor.
A hat to cover your head. Water drops from the roof and it's not pleasant clean water.
Gloves to protect your hands - you don't want to touch any cockroaches or poisonous millipedes by mistake.
Tuck trousers into boots so they don't touch the ground and so nothing can crawl up inside your trouser leg.
Spectacles to protect your eyes in case you look up and the contaminated water drips into your eyes.
Scarf to cover your nose to lessen the smell.
Photo Equipment: It is worth paying the fee to take the camera in and take photos of all the creepy crawlies along the walls.
Miscellaneous: A torch is useful as it is dark in places.
Don't leave any flesh uncovered in case something lands on you or crawls on you, or in case you slip on the walkway.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: don't forget to take your malaria pills, but I didn't see more than a handful of mosquitos
Photo Equipment: you wont want to miss the opportunity to photograph the orangutans
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: binoculars to see the wildlife that is at the uppermost canopy of the jungle--especially to see the hornbills
