  • Amazing place to go ! We went at 9:30 we were the first to arrive. Guys at the entrance were super nice and explained us a lot of things about the place. To go inside the cave you must wear hiking shoes ! We did it easily because we’re climbers and not overweight but I don’t think everybody can go inside. The cave is amazing and hypnotic. You also have a beautiful path through 7 arches where everybody can go even kids which are also stunning ! A great discovery !
  • It was a beautiful place to see and hike around. It's $5 to get in. Sneakers rather than sandals would have been better. There are some sharp tight areas. It is very beautiful though.
