We visited this place on our way to mawlynnong. Cave has some narrow escapes but it feels really good to go through them. On exit we can roam around a patch of natural jungle which has some good varities of vegetation. Will recommend this place, as its ticket is very nominal.

This is a very average place . It is natural cave of lime stone rock. The road in the cave is really narrow . Senior citizens and healthy persons must avoid it.

Real cave experience. Be sure of your strength before starting to enter. There is no escape way. Only one way. Once you are inside you must finish. Extremely narrow at many places inside the cave.

It was my first experience to go inside a cave, passing through a narrow, rough, but well organised cave. It was exciting and such an opportunity should not be missed.

It's a decent place. Not a must visit though. If time permit, can give it a try. The cave stinks a bit and not properly maintained. Entry fees is applicable.

Well organised and laid out walk. God for adults and kids. Consists of stalagmites and stalagmites. Has some narrow spaces to cross. Not recommended who have a problem of being in cramped dark spaces.
