Just amazing! Our guide shared so many unusual facts it made my head spin. Just thinking about how many years, (120), to grow one inch, really put my concept of time in perspective.
The tour is not good for people who have trouble with steps...More

I was looking forward to this place when I planned my holiday, it didn't disappoint, just one criticism the guides were a little over zealous in their don't touch that, don't do this.... strange when a new path is being mined through the caves

We arrived mid-afternoon on a weekday: it was still extremely busy. We bought a...More

Beauty at every turn.
Be advised. There can be a long wait on weekends,...More

Interesting thought -- as they said on the tour, growth is one cubic inch per 120 years through minerals collecting as water passes through the mountain and resurfaces on the rocks (stalactites/mites/columns). They were discovered in 1878, or 140 years ago. This means that since their discovery and throughout all the years of the caverns becoming an attraction, they have grown only a little over one cubic inch.
