Cango Caves

Friday - 3 Mar 2000
The Garden Route , Western Cape - South Africa


Cango Cave

Cango Cave is about 20 km. north of Oudtshoorn.

The thousands of years old cave was about 1,5 km. deep into the mountain. The cave consists of long tunnels linking the three huge caves. But because the tunnels were very narrow some places or going very much up or down, it was almost impossible to discover it in a wheelchair - So I only went through to the first cave, which was quite alright!

Cango Cave ligger ca. 20 km. nord for Oudtshoorn.

Den tusinde år gamle hule gik ca. 1,5 km dyb ind i bjerget. Hulen er bygget op med lange gange, der forbinder tre store huler. Men fordi at disse gange var både meget snævre og stejle var det utroligt vanskeligt, at opleve hele hulen i en kørestol - Så jeg kom kun igennem gangene til den første hule, hvad der også var helt fint!





Around the Stone Age, people used to live here. In the beginning I thought that it must have been very cozy, but when I thought about it a second time I wasn't convinced. It must have been incredibly dark and dampy in the caves. Maybe it wasn't that pleassent at all.

The shapes of the limestones are magnificant!!! And it's amazing to think about how many years nature took to make this.

Omkring stenalderen boede der mennesker i disse grotter el. huler. I starten tænkte jeg at det måtte have været utoligt hyggeligt, men da jeg tænkte en ekstra gang over det, var jeg alligevel ikke helt overbevist. Det må have været utoligt mørkt og fugtigt i hulerne. Måske var det slet ikke så rart og hyggeligt alligevel.

Formerne på kalkstenene er imponerende!! Og det er utroligt at tænke på, hvor mange år det tog naturen at skabe dem.
