DO NOT go through the jungle unless you have a full day to hike/ lots of food/ long clothing/ a machete! My boyfriend and I have been hiking all of our lives but trying to find a trail in the jungle was so hard. There were scattered piles of burnt wood- so we followed that up to some farm fields. We then trekked through 3 fields on what we assumed was a path. We thankfully found the farmer and he pointed us towards the paved road we were supposed to be on for the other half of the loop. It was way too late then to find the caves so we had to walk back to town instead. The village near the caves was really fun to walk though- I strongly recommend an out and back on the right side of the map to the caves instead of doing the loop! I hope we can someday go back to see the caves.

Long hike mostly on paved road. Beautiful views with many farms along the way. The cave is large and very deep. make sure if you plan to explore the cave you bring a good light source with a backup. also helps to light candles every 100 meters or so to easly find your way out.

Great hike in scenic rural area with wonderful views. The cave is impressive as well. Also there were lots of birds around all the way. Really enjoyed this one.

Please keep in mind that doing the loop (not just to the cave and back like in Andre's recording) is harder than it may seem. Approximately in the middle of the track there is a portion where the trail gets absolutely lost in the forest and to follow the track you have to hack through the bushes for about 500 m. If you're doing the loop clockwise you'll be going uphill on this part of the track. Also this part of track is impossible to do on motorbike so the track description is misleading about that: you cannot do the whole loop on motorbike.

This is a very good hiking. Altough it is mostly in a paved road, its a kind of a long hike. Taking aprox 3-4 hours to go back and forth. You can go by motorped also if you want. Views are amazing and is completly off the beaten tracks.

The cave is just amazing. Bring a good flashlight and watch out for spiders on the walls. They won't attack you arbitrary but you can acidentally put your hands in one of then if you dont look where youre putting then.
