Kiskendo Cave has been officially opened as a tourist destination since 1987 by the Yogyakarta Special Region Tourism Office. In 2005, the management of this cave was transferred to the Kulonprogo Tourist Office.

This cave is very interesting to visit because it is equipped with proper lighting. The path has also been built in such a way to make it easier for tourists who want to walk.

However, you still need to be careful when passing through. The water droplets in the cave make the path inside a bit slippery. Some parts of the cave are also quite low, so when they want to go through, visitors have to bend over.
