The caves are 70 feet underground and the path is narrow , though it's not very exciting but would be a nice experience for adventure enthusiast . But do not visit if you are claustrophobic . The limestone structures are anyway destorted due to tourist visits

It's the most surprising tourist attraction in Bastar . It remains closed during the entire stretch of monsoon , so available to venture from November to May only .

The cave is nearly half a km long and is about 30-40ft below ground. It is located deep inside the forest in the Kangar Valley National park.
