    Nice place to hike in a cave! Tickets are reasonable, there are 2 options:
    1. Dry route
    2. Wet route, need a guide (appointed by the management during the ticket purchased).

    I love to be in nature but hiking is my option rather than crawling in the cave... Anyway a very good experience.. If you considered your self as cave explorer.. You should try wet tour 3 or 4

    I took the tour 2 and walked the cave on my own. Nothing much to expect and only good to burn off some fats although there are lots of beautiful scenes and a windy weather to enjoy.

    If you're adventurous, I highly highly recommend the wet tour. I got the third package and had an amazing 3+h journey to another world ?, definitely not for the faint hearted. Advance booking is recommended to get the time slots you want. If you wanna be a pro, get knee and elbow pads, socks, long pants, high power torch light. Note, you'll be crawling in sand and swimming in the river.... All in the dark.

    A great place to visit, with a beautiful drive and a clear road. The surrounding scenery with the mountain view is breathtaking. There are two packages available, one for RM8 for a 40-minute round trip and another for RM12 for a one-hour round trip. It's a stunning cave, but be careful when exploring it. It's not recommended for those who dislike walking. There is ample parking space available. Highly recommended !
