Lessons from my trip / Tips for your trip

  1. Always carry wide angle lens and tripod with you. Do not leave it in your parked vehicle.
  2. Using flash light empties your camera battery faster than expected. Bring extra lighting arrangement to cater the needs.(Extra batteries are not helpful sometimes)
  3. Do not visit on a holiday.


Meet you in another cave.
