Our science-based nature tour programs are designed to promote awareness, appreciation and knowledge for cave and karst conservation in general, and the Dark Cave in particular.
You will find a wholesome, enriching educational and fun caving experience in a scientifically significant tropical cave environment of the Dark Cave ecosystem. It is home to an ancient animal community of over 100 million years old. Our Educational tour program allows visitors to explore this natural heritage and provide levels of experience that can have our curiosity, respect and compassion increased. For teenagers and adults, the Adventure tour program offers challenge, teamwork, fun and confidence-building.
