    The paintings are well worth a visit, it’s not everyday you get to see prehistoric rock art! The guides tried to tell us the entry fee was higher but didn’t argue when told we new what the correct fee was. It’s slightly more of a trek than advertised as the 3 sites are not exactly next to each other & require a little bit of climbing, it is not wheelchair friendly. An hour is more than enough time & provided a welcome diversion on the way to Sipi.
