Quite popular place, many tourists. You have to walk to the cave, but if you have flashlight (in mobile) then extra oil lamp is not needed. You have to climb (from stone to stone in entrance) in the cave and there are many coffins, skulls...More

This is one of a kind burial cave, no smell and the actual skull can be seen in the caves. Need a guide to bring the light as it's very dark otherwise. Recommended.

This is impressive, but it is a must to be here with a local guide! We came here as part of our multi-day tour with local-guides.org. You can book in advance your tours on their website (or even hire an super comfortable airport pick-up service...More

The cabe burial culture is still thriving in this place. There are bones and skulls of hundred of year in the coffins stack inside the caves.

Very strange to have human remains used as a tourist drawcard. Well worth a visit. The payment for a lamp doesn't include the person carrying it so be prepared to pay more.

Bizarre to see all the open coffins but it is interesting too. You will be guided around by a guide with an oil lamp.

Special place to visit. We were by ourselves and hired one of the guides that wait at the entrance with lights (for rp 50,000). This was a great plus! He told us a lot, which made the visit far more enjoyable. The light is rather...More
