These limestone cave were formed over 80 million years. Warm in winter and cool in summer, visitors can enjoy the stalactites up close. The path inside the cave has lots of ups and downs so is unsuitable for wheelchairs, but the view within the the grounds is stunning so even just a walk around the park is satisfying. The park also has a multi-purpose toilet.
In addition to the limestone cave is, there is also a souvenir shop, restaurant, gazebo and observation deck within the park.
You can admire the stalactites as you walk along the 600m route inside the caves. The path has a with lot of stairs and parts that are very narrow with ceilings low. The path inside the cave is very much like an expedition so is unsuitable for wheelchairs. Because it is dim inside, even people without a disability need to watch their step.
