This cave is really long bt a must explore. My parents stayed outside and i explored it all along, although alot of people were going back because they were scared that they'll get stuck but it's really easy and intresting place to go.

Limestone cave without the classical stalactites stalagmites. The stalactites have all been broken or removed and stalagmites have all been blunted for/by people. At best a juvenile adventure. At worst a potential accident site. Though the caves are lighted, they require you go go with...More

I am not sure about it being open in August. Carry a powerful torch with you and be careful to move inside slowly and supporting each other firmly.
