Description of Speleology in the cave of Tibigracias La VecillaIf you are one of those who enjoy a good canyoning route, we would like to introduce you to its antithesis, caving . This adventure sport forgotten by many is a true delight and promises the same as canyoning only in a more exciting way, underground. That is why we have a great plan and only you are missing, a caving route through the Tibigracias cave , in the Leon town of La Vecilla .
This region is a true Eden for a caving route through the infinity of caves it has, but this one is certainly really special and unique. But before entering what interests us all, first we want to tell you that you will not need anything. You will only have to come with sports clothes, wellies, towel and a change to change. Forget about anything else because we take care of all the materials and the professional guide.
Not just anyone can join a caving route , although the Tibigracias cave is undoubtedly an exception, since even children of at least 10 years old will be able to accompany you, the only thing necessary is a relatively good physical form. This cave is located in the Hoces de Valdeteja and to get to know it we will undertake a 1 kilometer route with 40 meters of unevenness.
The Tibigracias cave has a spectacular beauty and we will see it from the beginning, after passing through its main mouth of 5 meters wide by 2 meters high. Exceeding its entrance will lead us to a ramp that will take us to two small, very narrow openings that we will crawl through. When we pass this part and already on our feet, we will be stunned to see that we will be in front of a sinuous underground meander.
We will then be on the course of a huge river that runs through the Tibigracias cave and this is what undoubtedly represents the great attraction of this caving route . Thinking that even in the bowels of the earth nature makes its way at all costs, leaving before us a beautiful natural landscape and its own ecosystem, will leave us speechless. We will see how this part is divided in two.
- The first section of the caving route through Tibigracias is barely 200 meters long and runs in a northwest / southeast direction. During this stretch we will swim and wade through its underground river, which will be cloistered between huge walls.
- The second part begins after leaving behind a chain of galleries that form a slightly wider upper floor. Following our path, curiosity will invade our body when we come across spectacular fossil galleries. In this part we will see speleothems, pools flooded with water and small crevices to pass through.
Try a caving route with us and discover the curiosities that treasure the bowels of the Leonese mountains that take place in the Curueño valley .
