Navigating the Entry: A Unique Challenge

Almonda Cave offers two entry points — an artificial entrance through a tight vertical restriction and a natural entrance through a challenging 50m dry cave section. The latter, while original, poses difficulties with double tanks, and the former, located in the spring basin, can be unstable, occasionally impacted by winter heavy flows.
