The walk up the hill is tiring but fun with kids along. Some ancient engravings on the cave wall on top - not so exciting really. As mentioned earlier good fun and exercise trekking up the hill and steps with the kids

It would take around 45 mins each side and will definitely challenge your physical fitness. More than the caves the journey and views are more rewarding. Carry water and wear shoes.

Start at morning. Keep in mind that you have to climb some distance to reach the cave. Take rest at points and climb slowly. Enjoy the trip.
