The road to the cave is a hell, narrow to the max. But beautiful. The scenery around is gorgeous. The cave is interesting and there are pretty villages to the way and back.

Great walk through the caverns. We had small children with us, so only took the 1 hour walk. But the longer walks are probably even more fun! The cave is a bit tricky to reach, be ready for some narrow winding roads up the mountain....More
