After rappelling, you will slide down a rope for 300 feet (91 m) to the bottom of the sinkhole. You won’t be able to see the bottom when you begin your drop, which is the source of this adventure’s adrenaline rush. But it won’t take long to reach solid ground, and you’ll get to admire a breathtaking vista along the way.
Your guides will have a picnic lunch waiting for you. Once you’re finished with lunch, you will go for a steep hike back to the top of the overlook and begin your return journey.
