Hi All,
Last time we went to MAJ, Franz mentionned a funnel shaped cave that is close by and has a tunnel that ends up at the foot of the cliff, anybody knows the name and location of this site?
Thanks
Jim

Hi Jim,
I guess I can help you and will send you a drawing which shows the links underground.
Arrow The Funnel cave is less than 2 km south-east of the Majlis cave. approx. 500 m south-east of the larger settlement there.

Hi
I have done funnel about 4 years ago, just watch the last section as you come out into the main corridor. We had to dig out for about meter in lose pebbles. Not quite a squeeze but close to it;100mts crawing. Just did not want to go all the way back then up 200mts. Watch the rope when you come out to the last 20mtr pitch the rope is still there but needs checking.

see yar
