I'd been there many years ago and it was immpresive, so I decided to refresh my memory. Because of the bad weather, at that particular time we're there just me and my friend. We had a sufficiently explanatory guide and we completed our short "excursion"...More

Whenever I visit big tourist locations, I get a little nervy. So many have been ruined by tourists coming in flocks. We arrived earlier in the morning and seemed to find a nice spot between visitors and got into the caves within 5 minutes. The...More
