Patuna Chasm Walk

A completely beautiful and wounderous walk. The 3 hour walk begins on Patuna Farm, where your then escorted by vehicle to the walk entrance. A hike through the farmland then takes you down into the limestone chasm and it is stunning. A river walk for most of it, and a swim at the end, if that way enclined. A must do. W: P: 027633133
