Watch as hundreds of little glowworms emit their bluish glow on the roof of these caves as your guide takes you through the fascinating history of the region. Resembling a night sky, these little creatures are not the only attraction here, as the stalactites and stalagmites here have their own spooky beauty. The adventurers can also go black water rafting, zip-lining or abseiling in the depths of the dark caves.
