The descent takes around 30 minutes of 4 hours required. Abseil alongside your instructor who provides information, reassurance...and a backup safety tether. Imagine freehanging in a massive void..bouncing a bit & turning.. look into upper levels of the cave. Wierd plants & formations cling to the sheer walls and the roar of the Mangapu river echoes up from far below. One guide looks after up to 4 people - who all make their unforgettable descent together down through the surreal mists and eventually landing in the base of this massive cavern.
Once down, take in the awesome views before starting on an even more amazing trip back to the surface.Climb over massive slabs of rock and a series of ladders.
