Chetan picked us up at our hotel promptly at 830am. We had a separate driver, so Chetan was able to give us a lot of background information on the way to caves. Once we got to the caves, there were many monkeys near the entrance. The entrance fee was very small that we had to pay ourselves. We saw about 6 of the most significant caves out of 100 total caves and Chetan did a great job with describing their history and significance. We were returned to the hotel at about 1130am as promised. Great excursion!
