This is the most amazing cave we've ever been to. Exquisite formations, incredible stalactites and straws. Lots of steps but pretty easy if you take your time. Highly recommend.

This was a fantastic location to go and have a look. You will enjoy breathtaking scenarios inside the cave with the excellent description by guides. We wanted to stay inside more and more to enjoy the secret of the inside of mother earth.

Not suitable if unsteady on feet due to steps although there is handrails. No seating. Tour takes 55 mins I think. I would speak to staff first.
