The abseil (rappel) descent takes around 20 minutes of the total 4 hours required.
Abseil slowly alongside your instructor who although on a separate rope provides information, reassurance ...and a backup safety tether.

Imagine free-hanging in this massive void…bouncing a bit & turning because of the sheer length of the rope. Look around into upper levels of the cave and giant spagatites (look like giant green hands growing out of the walls). Weird plants struggle to cling to the sheer walls and all the while the roar of the Mangapu river echoes up from caverns far below.

It feels like you’re descending into the bowels of some gigantic prehistoric beast…a sensory feast.
One guide looks after up to 4 people - who all make their unforgettable descent together down through the surreal mists and eventually landing in the base of this massive cavern.
Once down, catch your breath, because this is actually just the beginning - there’s a lot more to do and see and you explore the massive vaults - See excellent glowworms; gigantic flowstone formations; massive caverns.


  • Arguably, the most spectacular abseil for initiates in the world – nothing in NZ comes close. 
  • Pre-historic oligocene setting is spectacular; unbelievable; mind-blowing
  • Exploration of the massive Lost World caverns as you ascend back to the surface
  • Palpable feeling of personal accomplishment
