  • These caves were stunning.....easy for my 5 year olds to do and they were so interested. Beautiful and a must do!!  more »
  • Very cool caves to visit. Parking can be a challenge but we lucked out and got a spot. A decent walk up to the entrance. The line looked a bit long to get a ticket but it moved quickly. The caves...  more »
  • Long lines to go in. Too overrated. You go all the way back through the same route, passing by lots of people who are irritated because they need to let you go opposite direction. Not at all...  more »

  • The cave route through the mountain is an easy walk. The temperature inside is cool, but some might find it cold. If you walk to the very end, then you may get a little cold on the way back. Some sections require heads to be low down. Great day trip, would definitely recommend.
  • This place was very nice. Beautiful caves and tiny waterfalls. The path you walk is a bit wet so good hiking shoes are recommended. The path from the road leading up to the entrance of the caves is pretty steep and quite a walk. The caves themselves are amazing, although the air is very humid inside. We had someone with lung issues with us and they had to turn around at the halfway point because they had difficulty breathing. The walk through the caves is also a bit of a climb, so if you have health issues, keep that in mind. Overall the experience was terrific!
  • Beautiful waterfall outside the cave, and very I interesting cave on the inside. Cave is fairly old and has a waterfall inside, so rock developments are unique. Very simple path to walk. Somewhat chilly (about 8-10°C, so bring a jacket if you need one). Path is somewhat wet at times so bring hiking shoes if you think you might slip.
  • Beautiful cave to visit. Paths are narrow and it is a bit chilly inside, we visited with you children during the summer (2 and 4yo) it was fine, but I'm glad we had jackets for them. Brought the carrier backpack for the younger one, but couldn't use most of the time (husband and baby would hit their heads). The hike up takes a while with the young ones, but family and 4yo still loved the visit... 2yo probably would rather have spent his whole time at the playground outside. The view outside coming into the cave of the lake and waterfalls are also great highlights.
  • The place has an amazing view and its worth visiting. There is a beautiful waterfall on the way up to the caves and then there is a small restaurant where you can get something to eat. The service is good and the staff are friendly. Inside the caves is cold and refreshing. Its good for an interesting walk or somewhart hike in the heart of a mountain
