Caving experience- Monte Corchia

After a brief introduction, we immediately put on our wetsuits, harness and all other equipment. A 20 minute hiking trail will lead us to the entrance to the cave.  After the briefing on safety and on the activity, off we go!

The air temperature is between 8 and 10 degrees centigrade. The entrance to the cave, which is a natural opening, is somewhat narrow and downhill. Shortly after, we reach the first rope abseil, then a second abseil, about 20 meters long, and then a third. From this point one, we will downclimb towards the walkways of the touristic route that crosses part of the caves, and will follow them for about 5 minutes. Then we will leave the tourist route behind us, detouring towards the snow galleries…. Naturally, the adventure continues! Ask us for more info!

For general information regarding this activity, download the briefing and the activity sheet.
