“decent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The caves or rather tunnels are there to be visited. Had a look-in with a guide (there don't seem to be any official guides though. Just random guys with torches) but the thing I actually liked most was the landscape. Probably has to do with that I'm from a flat boring country like Holland lol

“Historic walk in North of Bandung”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

There are 2 caves, called Japanesse Cave and Dutch cave. Used during 2nd world war. You can do a long walk from this area to Maribaya Fall. It take 3 hours (more or less) and then have a nice lunch in Maribaya Area.

“Ripped off!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

For foreigner, you have to pay an entrance fees which costs Rp50,000 per person just to go in while the local can visit for free. We thought the "tour guide" is going to show us around after paying the fees but apparently he was just the collector and there is no official license although a small notice saying entrance fees applicable, but we will never know where does the money goes to.

Both Japanese and Holland caves are located far from each other. It's recommended to use their motor services which again comes with cost.

Not recommended!
