BLACK HOLE CAVE RAPPELLING
Actun Loch Tunich Cave
Actun Loch Tunich is not for the faint of heart! This tour works every muscle so be physically prepared before signing up to explore the “Mother of Caves”. Formed from a sinkhole, you will rappel down through the rainforest canopy. Journey about 300ft until you reach the bottom! A picnic lunch will refuel you for the return trek back home!
The “Mother of all Caves”… Actun Loch Tunich! Start with a vigorous hike up into the foothills of the Maya Mountains to the mouth of the cave. The edge of the Actun Loch Tunich sink hole sits over 300 feet above the basin below, 200 feet above the rain forest canopy that grows out from the sink hole basin.Our fully trained caving guides rig a system of rappelling ropes for your descent to the basin below. The first 10 feet provides the adrenaline, the next 200 feet provides an unforgettable experience and sights to behold, the last 100 feet takes you down through the rain forest canopy. The sink hole is not actually black, but you can’t see the bottom from where you start. Once you’re at the bottom you rest with a delicious picnic lunch. The next question is… how do we get you out??? Climb of course! After a return hike including some rock climbing, ladder climbing, and a lot of sweating, it’s just a short ride back to the lodge for a dip in the pool with a well deserved cold drink.
