Create an itinerary including Ha Kome Cave Houses
Admire Ha Kome Cave Houses, a cave settlement built in the mid-19th century as a sanctuary from cannibals, and still inhabited by the descendants of its original dwellers. Upon arrival, a guide walks you through the carved-out caves nestled under an overhanging rock. Nearby, find restroom facilities, souvenir shops, and the information center--even though you might get all the details you need from the locals, who happily open their doors to visitors and answer all questions. The settlement can be a bit difficult to find due to poor signage along the way. Arrange to visit Ha Kome Cave Houses and other attractions in Teyateyaneng using our Teyateyaneng online trip planner.

  • Super random place that is on the worst road ever ... but definitely great when you get there. Mud huts built into a mountain? Getting to see women who have lived like this forever? Awesome.
  • Nothing special. Don't go just to see the village because there are only 5 houses. Beautiful landscape and mountains and good place for a walk, but the village is not very interesting.
