Suitable caves for beginner to explore. You don't have to be super fit to explore this cave. You just need to be a little adventurous. Proper trekking platform and staircases in and out of the caves. An awe caves

So many images can be seen. You have to open your eyes and be amaze on each rock you see. Each rock has its own image you can imagine.

I have visited other caves and I came with a low expectation. But to my surprise, this cave is as close to its original state-not touristy. Many interesting cracks and crevices to explore.
