Painted Cave

Painted Cave information

After passing through Gan Kira, you emerge into the forest and another section of boardwalk before arriving at the Painted Cave, famed for its ancient drawings, in red hematite, depicting jungle animals, human figures and the souls of the dead being taken to the afterlife by boat. It can be tricky to make out the red hematite figures, as many have faded to little more than indistinct scrawls along a narrow 30m-strip at the back of the cave.

To return, retrace your steps, taking the stairs up to your left to close the loop in the Great Cave.
