The place is real historic and interesting. But I would advise if you are with kids below 5-7 years please don't try it. The transportation is only till half a kilometre far from the ticket counter... then u have to climb the heights... after the ticket counter it's real climbing... it's good for half a day visit... don't try it...

It's about 1.5 kms climb - combination of road and steep steps but feels much more given the effort it takes to cover the distance. About 100 mts... More

A must visit place for anybody who likes historical/prehistorical places/monuments. Cave has carvings on two walls created over several centuries in history. Climb to caves could be challenging to elders or people with less stamina.

It's a challenging walk up if it is a hot day and at the end there are lots of steps but it's worth all the effort to see these marvellous carvings.

Be prepared to walk and trek around 2 to 3 km but at the end you will experience the stone age. It is very tuff to climb for ladies and childrens but they well laid the steps with stainless steel hand rails and stone steps. Once you reach the top you will get a fantastic view from the top of...
