The small squeeze entrance needed some dexterity to enter, something that my belly was not too cooperative with! And my family had a good laugh as i stumbled and fumbled to enter and exit the cave. Our group has done some caving/spelunking in the past...More

This is an interesting cave, since you must crawl through a small opening and tumble down to enter the first cave. Our tour guide had thoughtfully laid a life jacket to "cushion" our crawl. This made for some fun. The cave itself is unfortunately stuffy...More

Accessed by a tricky twisting of the body through a naturally narrow cave entrance (more like a gap), Cudugnon Cave is certainly worth the visit. One cannot help but be amazed at God's created world in this tucked in wonder that is nothing short of...More

What a great place, full of history and presence. It's a short 3 meter crawl through a small gap in the rock (Easy to Medium), and a small climb to a chamber (1.5 meters) which opens to a massive cave. You'll love it. Bring a...More
