Access to the area is by way of a single lane mountain road - with sheer cliffs. Fortunately, I did not meet another vehicle on the road (but it is not a road to chance without great caution). As I wasn't in a rush to get back onto the road, I went exploring the valley and caves instead.
This series of shots shows the limestone valley and dry creek bed bordered by Casuarina pines. The massive cave entrance opens onto a number of cave systems - including a self-guided cave, which gave me a chance to set up shots without any pressure to catch up with a tour. With such a wealth of subjects, I think I got lost in the forest.
A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours. Plenty of huts for those who want to stay a couple of days.
And then down into the cave...
