This place is really impressive and I suppose we should be thankful that an earthquake/landslide exposed so much for us to see. There is a bit of climbing (steps) involved but nothing too taxing and it’s well worth it to see the various parts of...More

Audio guide is available for around 10 GEL. It would be better to take a local human guide. The guide will join you at the caves. Either you can trek up from the entrance gate to the caves or take a paid mini-van ride to the foot of the caves.
The guide will be with you up to a certain point and thereafter you can explore the caves on your own. Make sure to ask the guide to show you the exit route before you part with the guide.
