Scenic Exploration with Dry Sections

The cave boasts a captivating 300-meter long dry section separating the first and second sumps. While much of this section can be navigated in the water, about 30 meters present a more challenging terrain between the sumps. The first sump, reaching a maximum depth of 21 meters (average around 10 meters), offers an enchanting journey with high floor-to-ceiling profiles, meandering approximately 700 meters to the dry section.

Ongoing Exploration and Impressive Depths

The second sump, wider than the first, has a lower flow that allows silt to accumulate on the floor and walls. Currently under active exploration, notably by Jason Mallinson in 2007, this second sump has been extended to an impressive 3530 meters, reaching a maximum depth of 71 meters. The beige-colored walls adorned with salient cracks and formations provide an exhilarating experience for scooter rides.
