The whole premises is dedicated to sex but in a very grotesque and exaggerated way that you cannot take it very seriously. If you like some little adventure, then the Manjang cave is your thing. The UNESCO Geopark is a more-than-eight-kilometre long cave formed by cooling lava. Take some suitable clothes with you, as it is usually wet and quite cold.

In addition to that, it is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the beautiful landscape and authentic nature in the UNESCO Biosphere reserve around the volcano.
