This was an amazing tour to see natural stalagmites and stalactites. Guide was fantastic and very well informed . One slight caution to be noted - very steep stairs down and up out of caves and not for claustrophobic! But if you can - visit!

It was a great experience and knowledge builder for our country's history. Although not a great trek up the stairs for the physically unfit.
