Aladdin Cave Adventure Tour
Get Hooked on Adventure!
If you have already conquered the Aladdin Adventure Tour recently, remember to click here to view your photo.
The Aladdin Adventure Tour runs once a week only. The lower sections contain masses of fascinating crystal formations and other surprises. Bring your compact camera.
You should complete the 'Plughole Adventure Tour' before the Aladdin Adventure Tour, as The Plughole is slightly less strenuous and eases you into squeezes and other caving manoeuvres.
The Aladdin requires agility, beginning with a steep, enclosed descent. Therefore, we do not recommend this adventure to anyone with claustrophobia. Challenges like 'The Traverse', 'The Slide' and 'Lang's Leap' will challenge you. If they don't, the return climb will!
Cavers don overalls, helmets and headlamps at the 'Old Schoolhouse', study the cave map and then walk up the beautiful McKeowns Valley, before a short (but strenuous) climb uphill to the cave.
After a safety briefing in the 'Moonmilk Chamber', we head into the dark. The cave includes an exciting downhill climb through the 'Rockpile', edging across 'The Traverse', climbing cave ladders, a slide, and then the fabulous reward for your efforts - squeezing into some highly decorated sections of cave.
The way out begins with a climb up 'The Slide', and continues up, so save some energy! The return walk from the cave includes a stroll through the dramatic Devils Coachhouse, a vast cave which provides an interesting contrast to the more intimate Aladdin Cave.
This tour is a great challenge, which you will remember for a long time. You can proudly show friends your Certificate of Achievement and free photos of your trip downloaded from our Mediafire page. (Please note that we do not photograph children under age 18, and we can't guarantee photos of adults.)
Also note that all tour participants must sign our Indemnity form. If a participant is under age 18, a parent or guardian must come into our Guides Office and sign for them before the tour.
