“The largest crystalline grotto in the region with a stunning array of formations. There is a basket to descend into the cavity for the adventurous or a tunnel entrance for a more gentle approach. It is truly stunning and only a 35 minute drive away. Reserve in advance especially if you want to descend in the basket!”
