The underground lake was breath taking. Absolutely beautiful. My 5yr old daughter really enjoyed it also, it's great for all ages. Bearing in mind there is quite a few steps to go down. But totally worth it.
It was very beautiful. The surrounding countryside was beyond gorgeous and reminded me of some of the most beautiful parts of France mostly because of the vineyards. In this attraction you get to go into the tunnel on a boat. It is nice. There is a little to see. We went there on a hot summer day so the tunnel was like stepping into air conditioning :-)
It is definitely worth a visit. The cave is quite spectacular. If you want something bigger definitely visit the Ali Sadr water cave in Hamedan, Iran though: it is a whole different level.
Beautiful lake but only accessible with guided tour. We had a great tour guide though. All in all, worth it
The lights inside the cave is just wonderful...a must to visit.
