Aranui Cave Gallery


Image: a strange speleothem. Stalagmite on the top, stalactite (soda straw) at the bottom. The reason is the strange location at an outleap of the wall.
Image: water entereing the cave from horizontal cracks forms parallel rims of calcite with stalactites and soda straws.
Image: a nice group of stalactites. The big stalactite in the center seems to be an older generation. After it formed, it became covered by cave coral.
