We really enjoyed passing through cave which has given a real flavor with up-down rocks, water dropping in between rocks and mid-dark view of cave. Just wear light shoes for walk around and loose fit clothes for easy walk.

Stinky water logged cave. Nothing interesting to see either. The smell becomes unbearable at times. Avoid if possible.

The natural limestone cave at Mawsmai is quite a sight ! It was fun traversing throught the cave with water dripping from the walls and water on the floor as well. Would suggest wearing water resistant shoes/ floaters else it is trouble walking.

We visited this cave late in the evening, there was no one inside except us. It was a thrilling experience. The stalactites and stalagmites were quite cool. Watch your head while inside this cave. Also at a few places, there was water which we had...More

Yes, the stalactites and stalagmites were quite cool. However what put me off was the way it was bursting full of people scrambling around over the slippery rocks and the pools of water, shouting to each other, shoving others who were moving slower than them.......More
