“Looks more like a Disney attraction than a "real" cave”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

15 years ago when I went through this cave at the end we both felt the cave had been "enhanced" by man and not natural looking overall. Now 15 years later and the same feeling. One of the few caves where people touch the walls, touch the stalactites and stalagmites and colored lighting that takes away from the beauty. Very crowded with groups overlapping each other, local guides shouting to be heard, etc. Not a great experience.

“Small cave”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

The cave is small but the setup is nice with the lights. It can get crowded in there with the group tours overall worth to see

“natural wonder”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

The site is amazing but the artificial lighting hurts the natural beauty making the caves seem more like a man-made attraction.

“Magnificent Subterranean Rock Formations”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

If you have never visited a subterranean cave, this one is vast with many unusual rock formations.
We could have done without the coloured lighting but were glad to have seen it none the less.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

I know the purists would not want to visit a cave lit up with coloured lights....and I am sort of one of those people....however this cave is well worth the visit. It is huge - goes on forever - with amazing formations. Not to be missed is the water filled grotto with beautiful reflections
