It's the first time I judge a cave as terrible. Though this could have been beautiful in the past, It's almost half destroyed for the sake of money and tourism. Stalattiti cut off to enlarge the walk and people allowed to touch -hence damage -them. Disco lights everywhere increase the cave temperature to the further damage of its natural beauty,... More

Went with the family, it was quite a long walk through the cave and it can get very warm when you get closer to the springs in the middle of the tour. Keep up with the group you came in with though because they turned the lights off on us because we were slower then the rest of the group!... More

This cave has some very beautiful formations. There is quite a bit of up and down stair climbing and the cave is pretty commercial with gift shops inside and outside. There were quite a few people touring the cave when we were there. It was very beautiful though.

This is a beautiful cave with large galleries of impressive limestone formations. Well worth seeing. Going early is a good idea as you may be less crowded inside the cave. One minor irritation is that upon exiting the cave you are forced to go through several large rooms full of merchants. You will feel like a lawnmower as the only... More

Yes this cave has many tourists and yes its is quirky with its shops inside - but nothing takes from the fact that is a marvel of nature with formations many hundreds of years old - and its shear size makes it incomparable.. So worth a look

If you are wondering which cave to visit in the area, this is it! The formations are fabulous, lighting, well, interesting! During WW2 the locals hid in this cave network to keep themselves safe. My daughter bought her friends some great trinkets in the shops at the exit.

If you been to cave before this would never excite you. You walk for a long and and see similar stuff. If you like doing mud bath, this might be a good place but no one gives any instruction if you have to carry towels, bag, etc and not that clean change rooms too. Initially they have lime stone rocks... More

We found this cave very beautiful but be careful when walking as may be slippery. Also there are some low overhang and managed to bump my head on the very hard rock above! Worth a visit!

As others have commented the bus loads of tourists and the overuse of brightly coloured lighting do detract from the wonder of this cave. However, I still found it incredible to walk through. I have never been in a cave so huge. If you are interested in geology and nature it is worth seeing. Maybe try going on a weekday... More
