The site was fantastic with very good arrangement and services by our guide. The entrance fee was reasonable. Sometimes in mid day it's too crowded by guests and made me felt a bit unsafe. But still okay.
it's a great experience that everyone should try!!! explore the cave through dark area, see the living of bats, many kind of stalagmit, believe me it's will be unforgetable.Rafting with a boat is usual, how if we do that with a 'tube',,,, private boat, hahahahaaa....and about the middle of route you have a chance to jump to the river from about 12m height and 8m depth,,,, i challange you!!!
It is nice to hear about the nature trip around pindul cave.We actually didn't really do the caving. But we did rafting through the cave. I thought it will be thrilling journey. However, it ended so fast as I just start enjoying seeing the stalactites. The trip itself only lasted around 5-10 minutes. Too fast to be true.We also didn't really have sufficient information about the cave by legend nor by science.However, this is worth to try. Only prepare for additional clothes and towel for you have to take shower after the trip.
I enjoyed a lote doing cave river tubing here. The guide explained about every single thing about this cave. The stalagtit and stalagmite are beautiful and some of them are still active and has something like crystal on it.Inside the cave, you'll also find Bat colonies. Suitable place for adventure lovers
