The trail inside the cave is amazing. Enjoy the tour, and the tour guide is very friendly. It offers a few trails, from short, medium to long range. A must go.

Me and my friends took the so called most extreme trail...The guides are informative and funny...They will guide you through...Get ready for crawling,sliding and a series of walking in the dark... If you are afraid of the dark and confined space, this is the place for u to challenge your fear...

Wish we'ed read the earlier posting as we did drive out to find the caves closed. We were offered the full wet tour by rather surly staff, and having read another trip advisor post conclude we did the right thing in declining and departing.
