History

 
2003caves discovered.

Description

A local village Glenn Russell discovered these caves earlier this year (2003). The caves vary from 5 to 10m in width and are up to 50m high with plenty of speleothems. A through trip takes about half an hour. The cave is a two and half hour walk to the nearest village. From the village it is a half hour walk to the bus stop, and then a 30 minute ride to Luganville.
