We went here on a tour and we are so glad we didn't miss it! A short walk on a board walk to the cave and then an easy walk thru the cave. Very interesting.

The walk to the cave had lovely flora and views. One area explained the types of prehistoric animals that roamed the area. Great view of surrounding mountains. Big cave with a roped path inside.

This is just a simple and normal cave, where supposed to be a museum or some animales remains, but there´s only a cement sculpture, and the entrance fee is 5000clp(around USD8). Not recommendeat all, you can use this time to enjoy Grey Glacier instead.

If we were not on our way to Torres del paine, we had never stopped here. Its just a big hole in a mountain. Nothing spectecular. Just filling up our driving day.

The cave is safe and you can take great photos. There is a little of history and you can buy souvenirs and coffee in a store
