Exploring the Entrance: A Journey Into Trou Madame

From the large entrance of Trou Madame, a spacious stooping-height passage with a sandy floor unfolds. After a brief 50-meter traverse, encounter a 1-meter drop leading to a lake where kitting up takes place. Depending on water levels, a short crawl of 10 to 20 meters may be required before reaching the deeper swimming section. The lake itself can extend up to 50 meters before reaching the point where the passage sumps.
