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

My apologies, I have no recommendations on scooter rental but it's a great idea. You will have flexibility to move around and see other places. It will save you time. Enjoy your trip!

The Fairy Cave is harder to reach,but is more scenic. The wind cave has micro bats is is not a photo friendly area.
