guide parco del monte cucco

Excursion in and out of the mountain

 

The path to reach the entrance is eight hundred metres long. Once there, a journey into the heart of Mount Cucco begins. You'll be walking by stalactites and stalagmites, large rooms, labyrinths and tunnels to discover a world that you only dreamt about.
A walk through the centre of the mountain is the most complete experience to stay in touch with nature. The caves, where the perception of space is alterated by the lack of reference points, will embrace you into a silence that you've nevere experienced before and the deep darkness that our guides create by turning off the lights for  a few seconds is definately one thing you must experience at least once in your life.
