If you are in the neighbourhood (and I would stretch the meaning of that as much as possible) you must go see this cave. Its tubular stalactites are very beautiful and the show in the "cathedral" is quite nice too.

We came by car, the nearest big city is Grenoble. you can enter the cave website and asked them: google visites-nature-vercors The best way is by car since the cave is remote place. Regards Oded
