You should take good shoes as there are no rope to help you to climb. The cave a nice but you can see the same anywhere else in the world

This cave is amazing. The climb up and down to the cave entrance is steep, but nothing impossible. The trek inside the cave is incredible, and is not really that difficult

I took my mother here and really enjoyed it! She is in her 50s and she thoroughly enjoyed it herself as well! Both of us were pleased with the guide as well as how neat it was.
