The Descent into wondersA well… or, rather a chasm… It is the first time that this incredible cave opens up before you. This chasm is nothing other than an immense, vertical, vertiginous doorway that invites us to pass, in a few minutes, from the outside world to the underground world. It is an entrance to a world that hides a thousand surprises and a thousand discoveries, and that doubtless hides just as many mysteries today… All that is left is to go down… A vision of the heart of the earth What do the insides of the earth look like? As you go down, the atmosphere changes. The light dims, and is replaced by gentle humidity; the temperature is a stable 13°C all year round. Those features allow unusual vegetation to develop.
