Dangers?
Nothing as such. Just try to wear your tennis shoes or knickers for a comfortable walk across the caves etc.

Off the Beaten Path Tips: If you are availing taxi, remember to ask your taxi driver to take you directly to the mountains and not some local marble shop. They have quite a reputation of taking tourists to marble shops instead of the Marble Mountains.
