The background history of this wonderful cave is very beautiful. More than hundred year old since it was first discovered in 1900s, this cave was popular for honeymoon goers and couple looking to tie a knot. The cave has got numismatic chambers or part up for different purpose. Cool thing about the main chamber is you got to look at the ceiling and be amazed and lost in your wildest imaginations. You got to sing or dance (cautiously though) as it’s a tradition of this cave! The cave got few narrow point inside so look out for your head and always stay close wit your children once inside. The lighting and safety has been well looked after. The tour guide were at each intersection making sure we were safe or to answer any questions. It’s semi-guided meaning you do your own findings and tour around, the guide escort you inside though but not for whole course. Always get ahead of time at 10 minutes to make sure you are not left behind by your group and miss it.

Worth it. Had a great time visiting the cave. The staff are really friendly and know there stuff - but also give you the space to explore on your own. Shout out to Shae for being a great guide.

Beautiful cave! Worth a visit and 22.50pp. There is a semi guided tour but you can also walk around on your own. Well maintained path. Lots of stairs so not accessible to all.

Haven't been in 35 years. Completely forgotten how good this place was. Staff very knowledgeable. Great for the kids. Not overly big but a good experience. Big shout out to Paul for your great guidance.
