Approach

Approaching Tresviso from Urdon, turn right after the first group of houses, on the right, in the village. The entrance lies just behind these houses.

Entrance

The entrance is large and immediately obvious, placed in a small cliff. There is a further, smaller entrance just around the corner.

Description

This cave is used as the village cesspit, so beware of the many small inlets from local lavatories. The passages all have mud floors which eventually meet the roof. A 6m climb up mud and calcite at the end of the main rift may lead to a continuation via an aven. Near the second entrance, in the LH wall, there are a series of narrow rift passages which end in loose boulder chokes and a further rubbish choked entrance.
