Ideas for Stag Weekend Activities – Caving Video

Video of Caving in the Brecon BeaconsOne of our clients from the weekend kindly took a great video of their caving adventure activity with us.

Porth Yr Ogof

The caving adventure activity takes place in Porth Yr Ogof cave situated in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales. Porth Yr Ogof (translated as the gateway to the cave) boasts the largest entrance of any cave in Wales at over 17 metres wide and almost 5m tall.

The maze of passages with multiple entrances and easy access has made this one of the most popular cave in South Wales for outdoor activity groups. It is estimated to have over 30,000 visitors per year. The cave has 15 different entrances leading to over a mile of accessible underground passageways which makes this very popular with outdoor groups to introduce people to caving. In normal weather conditions a dry rocky river bed leads up to the main entrance to the cave, but following rain this may quickly become a raging torrent as the Afon Mellte (the Lightning River) lives up to its name and quickly makes the cave inaccessible

Caving or speleology is the underground exploration of natural or man-made caverns. Caves are one of the most fascinating environments known to man where it is still possible to participate in original exploration. Cave systems have taken thousands of years to evolve their fantastic shapes, and crystal & clay formations.

This is the video of the caving activity in the Brecon Beacons.
