“Excellent”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Caves are always fun. Especially if they are full of narrow and low passages which you have to slide down on your back or belly, like this. Be sure to wear shoes, and mind your head. The amazing part was to come out and find some ladies who went through it and came out with no mud stains on their lovely saris.

There are strange but beautiful shapes sculpted by water coursing through these limestone channels. Most surfaces are wet, but some are covered with moss. Take the time to stand and admire the view, perhaps to take photos, without being rushed forward by the stream of tourists now coursing through the selfsame limestone channels

“Adventurous”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Quite an adventure this was. Narrow and wet. It was great fun to maneuver and go through extremely narrow and uneven path. In fact I discovered a new route out into the jungle:). Beware if you have claustrophobia!

“Feel like Indiana Jones”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

A nice cave with small challenges. I loved the place. The cave is bit slippery but nothing unmanageable. Avoid in case you have orthopedic problem.

These are natural lime stone caves.The inside path is slippery and not proper.There is no guide.In order to enjoy a natural wonder human efforts are essential.Other adjoining caves have no lighting.The beauty of this attraction could be enhanced by better management
