A profound contrast to the spectacular views just outside, this cave will "wow" you in a totally different way. Stalactites and stalagmites that loom around, above and beside you as you wander through some of the most dramatic formations that Nature has to offer. Not to be missed.

Fabulous cave with lots of stalagmites and tites, there is piped music and a lot of changing coloured lights going throughout the cave so be aware. Also there some steps, up and down to access the caves.

A bonus of the rock tour is the trip to the cave. Once inside the view is breath taking. Only get a limited time in there but enough time to take the photos required. Added bonus is the monkeys that will be attracted to your mini bus as you arrive

The Caves were large and illuminated with lamps of many colours. The Stalagmites and Tites were some of the largest I have seen. Th cave is so large that concerts are held there and even the queen has been. It is well worth a visit and I will certainly go again

Fantastic place to visit. You will be in awe of the sight. Classical music playing and the acoustics must be amazing when concerts are held here. Love the lighting providing a variation of amazing scenes.

Just a cave -NO! A big surprise, a cavern with a fantastic set -up. I don't want to say too much to spoil it for visitors. Just go and see for yourselves - !
