Photographer's Note

This multi-level phreatic cave was formed between 500,000 years and 15,000 years ago by the action of water dissolving the limestone rock. When the water level fell, the cave mouth eventually silted up as newer cave systems below carried the water out of the hill. However as early as 250,000 years ago calcium enriched water, dripping through the cave roof, began "decorating this cave with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites.
