Kawiti Caves Questions & Answers

North Las Vegas, Nevada

I have a tendon injury in my ankle and this trip is listed in my upcoming cruise itinerary as strenuous,

could you give me any idea why? I would really like to see the glow worm caves and am able to walk

if it's not too many stairs or steep inclines. Thank you for your help,

I need both knees replacing and found it no problem at all. There a few steps and low hanging rocks but nothing too bad. Worth the pain.

Hi. I have Parkinson’s and need a wheelchair to get around anything other than very short distances but I didn’t find the trip to be a problem (without the wheelchair). The trip wasn’t a long one (my memory fades but I think it took only about 30-40 minutes). We only walked a few metres at a time before the guide stopped and talked so there is plenty of opportunity to rest. The trip underground is on boardwalks and while there is an occasional flight of steps these are short and few. I’m not sure why the trip would be described as strenuous myself. It is underground with lamps and you to be careful not to bang your head on the low hanging rocks ceiling in places but no real reason to described this as a strenuous trip as far as I can see.

It's totally fine there's hand rails and a small amount of steps to manoeuvre around.

You should be absolutely fine for the internal cave walk there are only a couple of sections of steps. Give the pre walkabout around the caves a miss though as it’s lots of ups and downs. Enjoy it, it was a highlight of my trip!

There are some steps but noting too demanding. It’s not a long walk into the cave.

Its not too bad. a few stairs, but definitely nothing exhausting, however, track around caves may not be suitable for you, its pretty steep
