Looking Further on the Ailwee Cave

As we passed the waterfall in Ailwee Cave, it seemed we have literally turned a corner. I think this was where we started to turn back to the entrance. The trail is just a simple loop that brings you past the rock formations and the waterfall is the highlight of the tour. As we were turning, I noticed that there was a part of the cave which was not open to the public. The cave seems to continue on but I was difficult to tell where it ends. The there as lot of large rocks there and it is obviously not meant to be visited by tourists.

We weren’t told how deep the cave actually is but that there was still more to the cave than the part which we were shown. Perhaps they were still exploring the cave. I would be nice if they would be able to extend the cave even further but I guess it might also be dangerous to do so as it might destabilize the cave. The bears don’t seem to live here anymore perhaps the humans have scared them away. Humans didn’t really live here either since it was that out of the way. The only reason why human are here was because it was turned into a tourist attraction.
