The path leading to the entrance of the cave is surrounded by plants and trees, which creates a fresh atmosphere.
Scientists divided the cave into 2 main compartments, each compartment looks like a distinct theater. The canopy of the cave is covered with a carpet, which is made of mosses and ferns. Hanging down from the ceiling are the chandeliers of sparkling stalagmites and stalactites.
There are also many natural limestone statues in different shapes and sizes, which brings visitors into a surreal world.

The space of this compartment is huge and able to hold up to thousands of travelers.
