Thank you, Carson, for your feedback. However I could not find any information regarding a reopening in 2006.

According to information on the cave’s official website, the cave was closed to the public again in 2002 (after being reopened in 1982 to a limited number of visitors). It was decided in 2010 to retain the restrictions and keep the cave closed to all visitors except a small number engaged in conservation and research. A replica and museum were built nearby and opened in 2001.
