Approach

The entrance is on a flat cultivated area of land, 100m east of the Tresviso bar.

Entrance

A large obvious shake hole which is surrounded by trees and the local cheese caves, contains the 8m high entrance. The stream which runs through Tresviso sinks, into this cave.

Description

Apparently phreatic, the tube descends steeply for 200m over a floor of boulders and rubbish. The cave ends with a silted, impassable sump pool.
