Although the entrance to this stalactite cave can be easily reached by in about 20 minutes from the car park, the trip underground is quite difficult and is recommended as only being suitable if you have caving experience. There are tight squeezes and some climbing is involved, but the trip is described as an unforgettable experience.
Old clothes or overalls and gloves are recommended. Carbide lamps are provided, but visitors may prefer to bring their own headlamps or torches.
