My friend and I initally thought of doing the Lost World 4 hour experience. After learning the 7 hour Epic adventure, we decided to go all out and have never looked back. This 7 hour experience is really EPIC and worth all time and energy invested.
Most of the time is spent in water and navigating through rocks in the cave which those who did the 4-hour wont get to experience. In fact, we felt that, except for the abseiling, the experience would be sub-par for those who did the 4 hour one. If you take a look at the photo, the 4 hour tour ends at the ladder and you do a bit of a hike above ground.
Truely grateful to be able to be do the 7 hour epic. It does requires some level of fitness and you can do it slow and steady. Our group was able to be ahead of schedule and thus, we get to do a couple more stuff in the cave.
In total, there are 3 spots to sit down and rest to see the glow worms (the first spot is where the 4 hour tour ends, the other 2 spots are only available in the 7 hour epic as they are in the caves and they are far better than the first spot)
The guides were very experience and were very safety conscious. Thank tou for making this experiece so great for us.
