impressive and breathtaking - definitely worth booking a tour if you are in the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and humorous. We also enjoyed watching the free screening of the Cango film, which provides more history and information on the caves

Caves were an interesting stop along the route for us. Aside for a short bit about the front of the cave being used by ancient natives, theres not much history there. The cave tour is short, you dont actually walk too far in the caves....More

We went with our teenage boys and 80-year old gran. Good idea to book or go early as it gets busy. Fairly easy to get around but a lot of stairs which some people may find challenging. We all loved it though and guides extremely...More

A good visit and informative guide. Limestone rock formations which over the years (400,000+) have created some magical shapes. The full "mite" where the stalactite has joined the stalagmite was cool to see. Quite a few steps but the basic tour should be accessible to...More

If your adventurous enough try the adventure route but do try the actual size trial gaps first to make sure you fit through and flexible!!

Can one just go into the main section which is flat as our UK relatives can't walk far.

Entrance has a slight gradient and if taken with a leisurely stroll it is not too strenuous.

We are thinking of coming to the caves in December we are at retiring age and wondered how difficult it is to get in the caves as in can we walk or do we have to climb/crawl? Many thanks on this . Kind regards Neil.

There are two tours to choose from. The basic tour is very accessible, but you need sensible footwear. The adventure tour is for fit agile, possibly experienced, cavers. It's a fantastic cave with excellent guide.
