Overview of Wiya Bird Cave

The bird cave located in Tafunsak about three miles from the airport and just before the quarry is home to thousands of Island Swiftlet birds. The mouth of the cave has a large opening that goes back about 60 feet; the floor is soft, but is covered with bird droppings and is considered unsafe to walk on. It is believed that the cave once cut through the island. Local lore says that giants used to live there and were thought to have taught Kosraeans how to count from one to ten and taught Kosraeans to fish. A sign adjacent to the cave will inform you of the legend. Parking is adjacent to the site off the main road. Entrance fee is $2.

Vera H. wrote about Boiling Lake:

"This is rated as a difficult/strenuous hike. It's about 7 hours round trip. There are a lot of steep steps going up & down. I consider myself to be mildly in shape. My quads were definitely burning going up the steps & my knees grumbled going down the steps. I was able to make the entire hike but I did have to stop a couple times to rest & catch my breath. It also rained during our hike which made the steps muddy & slippery. I slipped on the hike back & tweaked my wrists, so be careful! There was one person in our group that had to stop before they got to the Boiling Lake, their legs started cramping up. But we saw a bunch of younger kids just running up the steep steps and they didn't even look tired. Definitely take a guide with you on this one. Our guide showed us where to get the sulphur mud to put on our faces & arms like a mud-mask. He even boiled us some eggs in the hot pools! Also, take a couple changes of clothes (rain jacket, long sleeve shirt, bathing suit & a towel). It was VERY windy in some spots & after it rained on us, it didn't feel good to be cold & wet. But we did get to soak in the warm pools on the way down, it warmed us up & got us relaxed. Made it hard to continue on the hike, haha. I only recommend going if you are in decent shape & not afraid of heights.
