Full Day Caving Tour« Back to list
Explore the depths of Changara Cave by climbing, ascending, rapelling, crawling, squeezing and scrambling your way through the labryinth of tunnels and caverns. The climax is a 30 m rapell out a "window" in the cave.
The temperature in the cave remains the same year round so caving is perfect for late Autumn when outside temperatures drop.
We provide you with caving overalls, hemlet, headlamp, boots and a caving harness. Just bring a thin layer to wear underneath and a change of clothes for after the onsen post-tour.
