  • An affordable historical/geological experience that is well worth the visit, The guides are knowledgeable and the area has been well upgraded since my last visit. Important to note that there is a well stocked shop, a fish foot spa, a butterfly park, a dinosaur park and an entire resort at the bottom of the mountain. Would have loved to spend more time there.
  • Stairs leading up to the caves. Surrounded by nature. We had a excellent tour guide, his name is Innocence. He spoke clearly and kept the group involved with his light humour and interactive style of guiding. He was open to any questions and waited for the group to finish the photos , and even took some for the group members. Lighting is perfect in the cave to emphasize the rock formations.
