Flowstones in the Chamber of the Giant Squid

The awesomeness of it leaves us speechless.

Chimney of Angels

Covered with an array of formations resembling angel wings, a spectacular 36ft tall chimney is quickly named Chimney of Angels.

The giant squid looking straight at us

Suspended from the ceiling, fragile translucent draperies hanging down in wavy sheets of calcite, numerous long stalactites and other strange cream- and peach-colored formations capture our gaze for the longest time. What beauty!

A beautiful drapery

Strangely enough, while underground, I feel close to heaven! Surrounding us is an eerie quality of spirituality as one can sense in a cathedral or other religious building. Hard to describe.
