Limestone Caves, Baratang Island

(3.7/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Formed over millions of years, Limestone Caves are ancient caves waiting to be explored. Located thirty minutes from Baratang Jetty, the ferry-based journey through mangrove forest is just as beautiful as the destination. A further 1.5 km (0.93 mi) walk through tropical rainforest brings you to the caves where giant sedimentary limestone formations have formed. Walk amongst the stalagmites and stalactites which over millennia have changed shape and size. Wear sensible shoes and bring a flashlight for the caves that prove to be dense, deep and envelop visitors in absolute darkness. A visit to Limestone Caves represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Baratang Island vacation builder to plot your vacation.
