The maintenance and the carvings are great. The government is maintaining this land so well and creating employment for more women in the village who drive buggies. It's a great heritage sight.

Few tourists, amazing places... like doing Indiana Jones. I can only recommend to dedicate a day/ half a day to visit the whole area. By the way, it is super fine without local guide, and reading the notes of Lonely planet

Yes tickets are must. But not for infants. Even if you use public transport, you have to get down at the entry, then have to take electrically run vehicles. Public transport vehicles are not allowed to reach this place. Available, run by locals at the road side.
