“Mindblowing!”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Liked: A cave of historic importance. A good calorie burner. Stunning view from the top. The Cave itself!
Disliked: Since 2009, visitors are not allowed to climb to the top of the peak, which actually would have given a more challenging trek to the adventure lovers. Your journey ends at the second cave.
Road: The road till parking lot is in good condition. So no worries.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Make sure that you reach there to the ticket counter by 4pm. The counter is about a km uphill walk from the car parking area,
From the ticket counter, it is a 300 steps ascent. Surely not for the aged. And sure to test your fitness level.
This cave (or rather a shelter) is of historic significance, dating back 6000 years, with wall inscriptions.
