This place is a must see if you happen to visit this part of the country. Surprisingly well kept and nobody hassling you. The cave itself is beautiful. Recommend taking a guide.

It takes approx 440 steps walk to enjoy these natural rock formations. Getting down to see them is very easy but climbing back 440 steps to reach the surface is a hectic task. Never the less it was a good experience at Borra Caves. Worth going atleast once.
