Detailed Information

This cave is a horizontal cave developed in a limestone area. The entrance to the cave is 2.6m in width and 3.5m in height. The cave is 60m long. A 12.3m x 7.3m square is located at the point which is 32m away from the entrance. The square suggests a possibility that pre-historic human beings lived here. But without an excavation, it will be impossible to find out the nature and situation of the relic.
