What To Do

See the Cave and take the walk down to the bottom. Watch your head. They do give you helmets which you do need especially if you’re tall. If you have issues with stairs it will be difficult as you have to walk down about 120 or so stairs. Then you have to walk, crouching at times to the area where the large stalactite stands.
