Well known cave to locals and tourists.

Large entrance is climable with the aid of a 12ft wooden ladder in-situ. The passage leads upwards steeply to a junction. To the left a small crawl leads to large aven with old formations. Right at the junction leads to a continuing larger passage that slope upwards before encountering another junction. Right leads to an obvious cliff entrance (with wooden bench in place) that looks back out to the village of Laguna. Continuing straight on at junction leads to higher entrance.

Back near the entrance slope a difficult climb down a tube, of approx. 8m, leads to a large impressive lower chamber. there is a lot of old formations present and in the center of the chamber a skylight leads back up to the higer cave level.
