I had never done anything like this before. It is quite a tricky walk in and out but so worth it! There were so many massive bats! It was eery and exciting. I loved it.

Leisurely walk to the caves. Idyllic surrounding. Maybe you will get a bit of hassle from the kids who want to take you there but they are harmless and will leave you alone. Lovely place to spend a few hours in the forest

Very mystic cave with lots of bats - awesome! After climbing through the entry, switch on your flashlight - you will be amazed. Please wear good shoes!

Your enjoyment will depend on how much you like the cave versus the long, hot walk there. We found it moderately interesting.

It takes a 30 minute? walk to get there, climbing over rocks and down steep sections but was worth it. Dark cave with many bats hanging from the roof of the cave. Our guide had a torch which made it easier to see them.
