Recommended to go with gym shoes. It is a wonderful place to visit. It’s 700 mt uphills so bring plenty of water. There s a small parking at the bottom with the possibility of having fresh public water. Absolutely beautiful place

It's not an easy hike up to the top of the mountain, but it's certainly worth it to see this remarkable temple. While here, be sure to explore the area behind the temple, which serves as one of the primary cavers' entrances to the Grotte...More

It was like walking in Yosemite valley up to a temple in a cave. Nice hike, beautiful caves. Try walking back, it gets so dark in the case that you need a flashlight, pretty spooky!
