It was a very good experience with family. From parking place, you need to walk approx 500 mtr. to reach the cave. If you go there in a foggy day, I guarantee you, you will feel it like a heaven. Must visit place.

A wonderful experience. Its a short walk to the cave, easy for kids and adults, may be a little difficult for senior citizens. The walk itself amidst lovely trees and breathtaking valleys is absolutely beautiful. The cave is much larger than Mawsmai cave. A fantastic...More

The natural cave is just awesome. The whole length of it has not yet been discovered. The short walk inside will leave you fascinated. An excellent place to visit. Too bad that locals and tourists are ruining the thousand-year-old stones by etching their named on...More

You need to trek for 500 meters to go these caves. Beautiful cave but it would be suggested to take some guide if you want to see the caves in depth. U can also see this cave by your own till 200 meters after that...More

The trail walk to the cave itself is so mesmerising. Just before you hit the entrance to the cave, the view overlooking several falls and the valley is wonderful. The cave as such is stupenduous with cold water flowing right through it. The sulphur smell...More

It was great experience visiting Arwah caves. The place is very informative and was a great feeling to see the fossils first time in my life. The caves were sufficiently lit to see the path. The road from the entry gate to the actual entry...More

Breathtaking when you move through near crevice shaped openings in the Dark. Good to have a guide if you want a safe entry and exit and yet enjoy the trail. Guide value adds on the unique fossils and safety of your children

Looks to be the correct entrance. You need to drive down for some time through the dense trees and rugged area before you reach the entrance which has a parking lot. almost a km walk from the parking lot to the Cave entrance
