DUNN'S HOLE CAVE


Here are some unique picture's of Dunn's Hole Cave 3 kilometres South of Stewart Town.
It is located at the bottom of a 200 metres deep pit.
This cave contains the biggest underground chamber of Jamaica.
The dimensions of this large chamber are astounding: 200 m long, 100 m wide and 80 m high.
It's very possible this wonder of nature will be gone very soon!
This area, like the rest of the Cockpit Country is threatend by the bauxite mining companies!

These pictures date from 12 February 2007 by the JCO.

Here is a link to a video from this magnificent hall.
