OVERNIGHT CAVING EXPEDITION

OVERNIGHT CAVING EXPEDITION


The Black Hole Drop is day one of the two day overnight caving expedition.

Day one starts off by rappelling into the cave. Once you are in the basin of the sink hole, your guides then lead you into the incredible rim stone dam entrance of the Actun Loch Tunich river cave system. Camp is set up inside the entrance and dinner prepared. Then on to exploring the upper crystal chambers which were the ceremonial sites of the ancient Maya. The next morning, after a hearty breakfast, you trek down another 400 feet along cave cliff walls on routes of the ancient Maya to the Actun Loch Tunich underground river, with over 24 kilometers of mapped passageways. Explore in the steps of the ancient Maya, past bubbling springs and an underground waterfall.
