  • All natural underground cave around 5 km long. Around 1 km is open for tourists with necessary lighting. The temperature inside the cave is fine but the humidity might make you feel tired. Photography is not allowed(DSLR). But you can use your mobile with out flash inside the cave.
  • Recently reopen, during an Eid Holliday, it was really disappointing because they were having over visitors and not too much explanation inside the cave. Otherwise, it's good
  • Book on-line during holiday periods. I was turned away because of crowds due to the popularity of this attraction
  • The wait was too long and even though we had a booking, they wouldnt let us go. No wifi either.
  • Book in advance, gets very busy. The day we arrived the train was broken and the caves were very humid
