An affordable historical/geological experience that is well worth the visit, The guides are knowledgeable and the area has been well upgraded since my last visit.

Stairs leading up to the caves. Surrounded by nature. We had a excellent tour guide, his name is Innocence.

He was open to any questions and waited for the group to finish the photos , and even took some for the group members. Lighting is perfect in the cave to emphasize the rock formations.
