Visited this place as part of a transit tour. This place used to be a mine before it was turned into a tourist attraction. It is rich in history and culture and offers more than expected.

It was refreshing as it was breezy inside the cave. It's a 1.5 to 2hr drive from the city. We went there through EG bus, purchased a roundtrip ticket. You will love esp. If you can take your time and drink some wine.

Yes.. the parking area is near this cave. But it is hard work to reach parking area in weekend because of too many cars. So I recommend you should visit there on weekdays.
