Quite a bit cave in a most unexpected place. Filled with interested formations and massive stalagmites/stalactites. You can often get a private tour as you may be the only visitors at the time.

We hesitated to visit these caves. Do not hesitate, pay the entrance fee and just do it. Where else can you enter a cave via a lift shaft. No crawling or claustrophobia. Just a magnificent experience. Gavin, our guide was amazing. Wicked sense of humour...More
