This is a must see for tourists and locals alike. We took the English tour which was provided by the venue. It was not expensive at all. The tour was almost 3hrs and covered only the 1st temple period. I was not aware that there...More

Going through this tunnel is like a bit of adventure... it’s pitch black, wet, chilly and narrow plus you’re walking in cold but clean spring water that still runs thru the tunnel and reaches almost thigh-high at the beginning part but mostly at calf-level for...More

It's very unique experience, but be prepare. Have water shoes, and headlamp. Also, when done walking in the water, you have come back walking outside uphill. But it's definitely worth it.
