The most known skeleton of this cave is “The Crystal Maiden”; the skeleton of a teenage girl, possibly a sacrifice victim, whose bones have been calcified to a sparkling, crystallized appearance. This excursion will start with a 45 minutes hike in the lush cool rainforest in which you will see astonishing landscapes of the jungle while trekking across rivers and isolated jungle trails.
