We weren’t sure what to expect and ended up being amazed. The cave is not huge but nicely lit with some great formations. The people maintaining it are rather passionate about the place. When being in the area, a visit is definitely worth the time.

Fascinating beautiful shapes and mysterious history. Additional trips into the depth of the cave available with the professional cave guides. Do not forget to buy the special healthy mud of the cave which treats the skin miraculously.
