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.
