The cave is interesting, and does seem to be the sight of important discoveries. Part of the path was closed, so the one-way circular walk didn't work, instead you had to double back on yourself. Still, worth a visit, and it was nice and quiet when I was there.

The cave was pretty interesting. It was so big! It was fun hiking up to the look out point. It was an unexpectedly grueling trek. Probably, if we'd had more time to do the other hiking trails the trip would have been more interesting.

The cave, which has some archeological importance, was basically cut by wave action. It's an easy walk to access. The cave mouth is wide open with a walkway. There are no formations as you would find in a limestone cave. Maybe if you have young kids or have never seen a cave it's something to go to, but I'd prefer... More

Interesting peak at the archiology that was under the glacier. A short walk on the rough path through the open cavern leads you past the site where evidence of animal life from 10,000 years ago.

It is a must if you will be visiting las Torres del Paine, but to be honest there is not much to see. A big cave where you can walk in, that's it.

Simple and accessible, interesting view and didactical material available. Poor guiding information and difficult to distinguish what was real evidence from speculation on human activities other than stealing bones form there.

Visited with some friends. It will take you 30 min top to explore the cave. But you can hike to the top and literally stand on top of the cave. Awesome view. Very windy during September I must say. Definitely a must see stop as you go to the Torres del Paine

If you're into geology and caves, you've come to the right place. They have statues of the Milodon so you can take a photo. See part of South America's ancient history here.
