The caves were fantastic and much more so with a guide to explain them. The hike up was a bit more than expected but oh, was it worth it! Great spots to take pics of yourself and the area. I recommend it.

No certainly not. You may not be able to carry your child and climb the rocky path. In some places you have to climb 2 ft high on a single rock.
