The place has good parking facilities. There are a few restaurants around. The entry fee is 20 per head. Not for the claustrophobic. You need about 15 mins to go through.

Lots of people go to this cave--it's fun, and parts are a bit of a squeeze, which adds to the fun. Footing is quite good, wear sensible clothing.
