  • Amazing cave! If you're prepared to wade through some waist deep water it stretches for hundreds of metres
  • It’s a really cool off the path cave. The positive is it’s unspoiled by tourism and a very unique cave. Ignore the other review, there is a pool you can swim in, but if your wadding in water for hundreds of meters, you’re not in this cave and probably don’t know what a meter is. The negative is that it’s 20 Tala, 4 times more than all the other attractions and you’ll need your own transport or be willing to hike a ways. I showed up in a scooter and gave my ‘tour guide’ a ride to the cave and he brought a broken flashlight. Luckily I packed my own. 4 stars for it being a really neat cave, but the price and totally dysfunctional ‘tour guide’. Much larger cave than the Peapea Cave.
