"Best time to visit this place is Nov-feb. Open - 9.30am to 6.30pm Entry fee-50/- Dress- better avoid jeans and tights. wear something comfortable cotton shorts and loose T's & Carry spare. Worst time to visit rainy season(july-oct, water seepage will flood inside the cave. In summer u can't withstand the hot climate and suffocate. Winter season is best. As weather will be cool and favorable inside the cave. This cave is actually a water table (once upon a time).Now converted in to a cave.This s second longest cave in Indian subcontinent which is ~4km long. (first being Krem liat prah and group of caves in Jaintia Hills in Meghalaya measuring 22,202.65m) Fresh water siphon(man made) and gallery (natural) are there. At a place(PATHALAGANGE) inside the cave which is almost 150mts underground, u can touch underground water. I happen to find small fishes out there happily swimming!!!!!!!! Which is a question mark, coz who placed them there!!! Inside, lighting arrangements and ventilation are maintained very well. It will take 1 to 1 and half hour ride inside. Local guide has no much knowledge about it's history (know no other language than telugu) but at some point he good at directing you inside the cave and has good cave sense... Better take him along. Guide is Cost effective(100-200/-)šŸ˜œ According to history there are 16 entry to the cave, but only one s open to tourist. Rest of them no idea where they were. Only 3.5km has been made tourist friendly rest yet to discover. According to localities there, till now they haven't found a dead end. Inside the cave lime stone have taken different shapes Viz, lion(simha dwara), crocodile, anaconda, shivaling Inside the gate u don't get food, only soft drink available. Before going inside make sure u are not hungry/carrying your own eatable. Jus outside the gate there are many daba but not that good. "
