Halmahera: caving in Sagea cave

Non-diving day: let’s explore something different. The big Sagea cave. With a small dug-out boat, we go upstream to the cave. The river enters the cave, where you then have stairs to climb into the first big space. The cave is hughe! Many different rooms with very high cealings. And stalactites and stalagmites everywere (bumped my head on one of them: it hurts!).

The cave is full of big bats, hughe spiders, some kind of crickets (but really big) and whip spiders.

Caving will probably not become my hobby. It is really beautifull, but walking through the mud, slippery, holding rocks full of bat-shit is not my prefered activity. 😉

The local guides were also happy when we mentioned it was far enough.

It’s actually the boatride to and from the cave which I absolutely enjoyed. What a view with the light hitting the water!
