Amazing Lord-of-the-Rings-sequel walk through a jaw-droppingly scenic valley with mountains either side. Caves themselves were very interesting. On very steep slopes so not for anyone with vertigo! Awesome views. The real shame was the amount of used toilet paper strewn inside the caves. It is...More

The Bone Caves hiking trail is a perfect way to spend a couple of hours getting out of the car after travelling for 2 days. The hike has spectacular views and has both easy and a bit more challenging sections to please every hiker.

gentle climb up to the valley, following a river that disappears! There are several resurgences where the water reappears.

Fabulous little walk. Taking it steady, due to man flu, this took us three hours there and back. It's a fascinating walk in a hidden valley to the very atmospheric caves in the cliff face. Along the way, there's a waterfall and a spring that...More

The caves are at 350 meters and the walk starts from 138m, so the total ascent is only 212 meters. However the last section is a litle steep, but with a good path. Quite suitable for a family walk.
