Owner description: Though damaged through shortsighted tourism schemes in the 1960s, these caves are still worth a visit for their eerie dark tunnels and stunning limestone formations.

“Cango Caves”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

It was great to go back to the caves and compare reality to memory ( was there last when I was about 14... ). I was not disappointed. The guides were professional while maintaining a sense of humor and I felt that the experience was good value for money. There is plenty of parking but I think even that may battle 'in season'.

“Big caves”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

They provide two types of tours. One for walking along the caves and the other one is more adventurous. We took the first one (40 min. app) and enjoyed a lot.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I suppose caves are pretty similar all over the world, but these are more impressive than most I have seen. The caverns are huge, and the guide was knowledgable and entertaining. We only did the standard tour due to having a toddler with us, the longer tour looked to be a lot of fun.

“Amazing Caves”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

You have to see it to believe it! Worth the trip and don't forget your camera! If you are real adventurous try going to the 3rd and 4th levels of the cave. Very narrow and under water! The first 2 levels are spacious and open. A great day!

Don't miss it, even if you are a local! Good guides. Plenty of parking. We did not eat or drink. Friendly service.
