  • Nice and wonderful experience to crawl inside the cave. Well you may need a guide to get and know the ways of the secret cave. But be sure you get the price of the guide in clear or he may ask for a heavy price. RS 1000 for 2 hours will be better for a group of two. additional Bat Cave can also be seen with some tips
  • Nice place to be. The management team has done really well over the years to make the place beautiful and greener. Anyone new at Pokhara must visit and try the small exit hole in the cave 😁
  • Caption less to express the beauty of nature. Just love it.
  • nice place but overrated as pokhara posses other interesting cave
  • The cave is ancient and a good place to explore; its very drippy, chance of getting wet from the water accumulated and dripping in the cave, a few lights flicker inside so watch your step.
