  • Very nice to have known the cave! I've never been through a similar experience: walking in dark place, with a candle and in water.

  • We were lucky to be able to visit the caves alone because we were very early! Do the same! Then groups of 30 people gather and it can be overwhelming! If you have lights front carry them because there give you a candle i have a busy hand that you can not use for agararte sites.
