In the eastern state of Sabah in Malaysia and in the heart of the misty jungles of Borneo, a huge fissure in a limestone rock can be seen that guides enthusiasts to a chain of caves inside. Entering these caves is not for everyone. At the entrance of Nemur, millions of bats are hanging from the ceiling, while the floor and walls are full of cockroaches, mice and other insects that feed on bat feces and carcasses.

Gomantong Cave is also home to snakes that feed on rats and cockroaches. The cave smells of ammonia because of bat feces. The volume of feces collected on the ground is estimated to be about three meters. Wooden walkways in the parts that can be visited keep tourists above ground.

Bats make most of their nests with saliva that hardens when exposed to air. Soups prepared from these nests are considered very tasty in Chinese cuisine and are considered very useful for the body due to their high nutritional value. Some nests contain other foreign materials such as feathers or twigs, which are called black nests. Both are collected for edible consumption, but the pure nest has a higher price.

Today, the collection of nests is limited to certain times in order to prevent excessive exploitation. Twice a year, from February to April and July to September, authorized persons climb the roof of Gomantong Cave and collect the nests using only a ladder, rope and bamboo sticks.
