A cave with electricity. Some narrow bends/slits are there along with small passage that gives you the thrill of caving, wet inside but not slippery. Bears a foul smell and a few mosquitoes. Not suitable for the entire caving for Saree/ Salwar suit wearing ladies/...More

I looks like a Museum of Stalactites and Stalagmites. Quite Slippery but must visit. This place is ahead of Saitsopen, the market of Sorha, south ways.

It was not easy for me to navigate due to its narrow turns and complex setting. But at last when I could complete it, it was a great feeling of success. Must try.
