Thousands of bats, Indonesia

Recorded by Marcel Gnauk in the bat cave at the Goa Lawah Temple, Bali, Indonesia. 

"I was standing in front of the cave and couldn’t believe it, Thousands of bats sleeping, squeaking or flying around the cave! In the back of the cave is another room with even more bats. The bats leaving the cave at night and coming back in the morning. Maybe someday I come here again and wait until this happens but I think they close the temple before."

"As a visitor, you are not allowed to walk on the stairs so I had to make the recording from down below! To get a better sound with less background sound from the street bring a boom or a long tripod."
