This place is not for the faint of heart.
Caves Gomantong are complex, stretching deep into the earth system of caverns, to be in which it is impossible to wish the enemy. The fact that the Black and White part of the cave was chosen as the residence by huge swarms of giant cockroaches, bats and snakes. There is a legend according to which a Christian preacher decided to destroy Gomtang, finding that it was here that the Enemy of the human race sends their ungodly hordes. But what awaits the intrepid traveller in these gloomy depths.
Deep in the hot, humid jungles of Borneo traveler, with the right level of luck, you can stumble upon a massive cavern. Like the gaping mouth of a dead giant, it leads to everlasting darkness, turning into a system of dark caves.
Here no place for the faint of heart. Inaccessible to sight, the ceiling harboring millions of bats, and the walls and floor are covered with huge cockroaches, beetles, rats, and other creatures that can cause a seizure of panic, the most persistent traveler.
In addition, the cave was chosen by the snake. These creatures liked the climate of the earth failure, but food — remember the abundance of rats and cockroaches — there is enough.
The air is disgustingly thick: he’s too saturated with ammonia poultry litter to be able to ignore it.
Guano covers the floors of the cave. In some places its thickness reaches several meters. Here, of course, laid special wooden walkways for visitors who do have the fortitude to stick their noses deep into the cave.
Located at Gomantong hill, in the centre of the national Park of the forestry Department of Sabah, the cave became famous in the middle ages. In the darkest depths of the settled so-called salanganes, whose nests are eaten by the Chinese nobles.
Soup from nests of the so-called salanganes still is a rare delicacy. The cost of a kilogram of high-quality nests reach up to$2,500.
Therefore, in caves, which are considered to be almost the most unpleasant on Earth place constantly come seasonal workers. They have, for a very small fee, to work in absolutely horrible conditions, cutting off a bird’s nest in the surroundings, reminiscent of the canvases of Borges.
