49298. Sand dunes in the Entrance Hall, against the daylight



49300. View from under the First bridge towards the Entrance hall



49304. View of the bridge from below. The path is supported by pairs of fir wood beams, about 24 by 32 cm, last replaced in 1953. The first pair will now be replaced. Still an extraordinary achievement.



49303. Traces of water levels in the sand next to the bridge



49302. View along the riverbed towards the passage leading to the High hall, upstream the Unica river. The passage is under water, the boat will be necessary.



49305. Already on the other side, the boat and transport bag are nicely stored on the shore, the trip will continue on foot.



49306. View upstream with the rapids in the High Hall, to the passage towards the confluence of Pivka and Rak rivers



49307. View downstream, towards the passage leading to the First bridge



49308. Stairs already covered with flowstone, carved into the rock either in the 19th or early 20th century



49312. On the way back, from top of this rock in the riverbed, which provided an acceptable landing spot, a little downstream of the bridge ...



49310. ... this view towards the Entrance hall opened up.



49313. The last landing, on a sandy/muddy bank, was the easiest, and safest. The rocks nearly always sharp and one never knows how much rubbing against them might be too much ...
