Where I stayed
It started with a 10 min crawl through a narrow and low ceiling cave, water was only about 4-5 inches deep at this point. Then we came to the first of two water falls which we had to jump off, backwards while our asses were stuck in a rubber ring. Making sure we jumped back rather than up otherwise we would have ended up on the rocks.
After this can the floating through the caves looking at the amazing rock formations. On to the next waterfall - which was bigger than the last and so further to jump backwards. Once we had formed the eel - each person behind the last, holding on to the person behinds feet, we switched off the lights and glided through the caves with the glow worms above us lighting the way. It was pretty amazing.
Finally we had a black out - no lights on and a paddle for about 15 mis to the exit of the cave. All your other sensations alive as you could not see anything - it was great fun.
A hot show and a hot bowl of soup was gratefully recevied at the end of the afternoon!
