A little further from Grotta Bel Torrente is Grotta Smerelda and what makes this cavern so special is that you always have the possibility to ascend to the surface. There are several stone formations and swim through's inside the tunnel which make it feel like a small cave dive and at the end of the cavern the maximum depth is only 2 meters deep so we surface, take the gear off and continue on foot to a explore a beautiful stalactite formation. Because the natural daylight is absorbed as you penetrate the cavern area further a light is needed but this gives you the chance to go critter hunting in between the rocks and crevices.
