Thank you for your commentary. As you said all of our guides don't speak english that's why we are working on an application for translating the guide's speech to english people. See you soon.

The accessibility of the cave is fantastic and allows the visitor to get up close and personal with all the formations in the cave. A real treasure.

The outside of the caves wasn't very promising, partly because the train that leads into the caves could use an upgrade and the woman selling tickets was very unfriendly.* Once in the caves, the sequence of different spaces with their majestic geological formations was absolutely...More

Well worth a visit and restaurant opposite is actual perfectly good too! Bit airless when you get down inside and anyone with claustrophobia should probably avoid! Ultra violet lit stallactites impressive.

Are the caves suitable for a 7 month old baby in a buggy?

Response from Sinew F | Reviewed this property |
no. there are lots of steps some are very steep. with the dampness in the cave places are slippy so for me even carrying a baby could be tricky. there are also places where you need to duck your head.
