I rarely like to do things that are adventurous or physically demanding and so when I signed up for a trip to the biggest cave in the world I couldn’t have been more out of my depth!!! Friends and family had wondered if I would actually do it and, quite honestly, I wasn’t sure I had what it took to go the distance but I wondered if I might regret it if I didn’t try. I wrote a series of blog posts shortly after which told my experience of each day of my tour, which I have listed here. Would I do it again? Probably not! For me I think it would have to remain a once in a lifetime experience. Would I recommend it? Absolutely! It was a few years ago and the tour has been changed since my trip but you still get a good idea of what it’s like from the perspective of a forty-something woman who had very little trekking or caving experience.
