The cave had a lot of fascinating history, in that at one point, the nearby villagers were forced to flee and hide in it for several months. Originally, there were a few openings to the outside through the roof of the cave that warriors would crawl up and out of to get food and check on their enemies' location. These have since closed with mineral deposits. The cannibal oven also had a natural chimney that exited out the cave. This too has since closed up, but the natural formation of the oven itself remains. Near the priest's chambers, there is a chamber that descends to the depths and is full of water that spelunkers a decade or so ago explored with scuba gear. They found fascinating underwater features, but due to fear of future divers taking advantage, this has since been closed to outside explorers. This was a fascinating tour and a great way to see more of the "real" Fiji.
I thought this fog off the Sigatoka (pronounced Singatoka) River was beautiful!
