This narrow cave opens dramatically, via a set of 18 waterfalls which tumble 42 metres into a canyon. It’s like a high up split in the rocks gushing with water which then roars out.

Visitors get in to the cave through a purpose dug tunnel which opens out on to the main event, a vast and beautiful chamber 110 x 40 x 35 metres high, which rings with the sounds of the pouring waters. The water runs though a siphon gallery through the first hall of the cave then into the thunderous main hall.

The name comes from the shape of the cave entrance but all sorts of fiendish goings on have occurred in the cave including virgin sacrifices, which tend to go along with the name rather than the other way around. Inside it’s loud but quite safe, steps, lights and a hand rail have been put in.
