Day 1

We arrived at the arwah cave at around 10am . I parked the car and it was a 500m walk from the parking point to the entrance of the cave . The walk to that point was such an amazing feeling. We were lucky to be the first ones to tour the cave (thanks to our sneezing buddy, we got up early ) . There was a light rain accompanied by the all surrounding fog, that covered the forest around like a smoky blanket .
   The entrance of the cave gave us  details about some fossils to be found inside the cave . Being a geologist, i was quite fascinated by it . The interest started to grow manifolds by then . But the cave was not so tourist attractive looking, being the first ones to artive there, we were actually a bit frightened to explore the in depths of the cave . Yet curiosity won over and we entered . We saw a few fossils . Walked around the cave for a bit . The eerie feeling was subdued by our interest and curiosity. Will i ever go back there again ? You'll see me there the next chance i get to travel

The silence was most mesmerising aspect of that walk!
