We had two very nice guides show us the elephants and the bats in the caves. There also was a natural sink with holy water and we saw an owl. Lots of steps up and once inside it's a bit slippery, so wear good shoes.

When I went , it was absolutely empty and it was completely silent. There are 70 odd steps to climb and its advised to take mosquito repellent here. They collected 1$ as entrance fees.

Access to this temple is by way of 203 steps, 180 of them going up. Also, the tuk-tuk driver wanted me to cross a deep irrigation canal by walking across a single tree-trunk bridge. I didn't mind the stairs a bit, but I insisted he...More

It was a nice experience, to explore the caves. We took child guides so they bring lights and show us the way to reach out. It's easy to get lost if you don't know the way. We gave them 5 USD each.

Don't take any guides - caves are easy to walk through. Get a torch - safer walking. Bring your camera - some nice shots. Don't pay kids any money. They should be at school and not trying making money on tourists. Anyway - everything they...More

There are not many caves and they are easily accessible. No climbing is required. Unique photo opportunities. We went with four young adults and my husband and I and we all enjoyed this. It was a dry day, so the road was easy to navigate,...More

We went there and as expected paid for the entrance. Suddenly a little boy just started to act like a guide even thou we explicitly refused. It was just a short walk inside the cave with the usual rocky formation and what not. After a...More

After a bumpy road, we finally reach the place of interest. There they have many kids that will love to show you the cave and explain what you will get to see. At the entrance, you need to pay a USD1/person entrance ticket to visit...More
