Amazing natural caverns with a really good tour. Our guide was funny and very informative, shame some people still feel the need to talk the whole time even when the guide is trying to talk! Rope-making demonstration was also great.

There are about 30 steps throughout the cave. The pathway is uneven, so regular buggies are discouraged but all-terrrain buggies are no problem.
