How do you get into caving?

Before you go on caving tour, make sure you choose the right type of clothes. Most likely, the ground is quite muddy and there are many rocks around.  That means your feet will get scratched if you wear regular shoes or even with rubber boots. So it would be best if you wear rubber soles that do not hurt when bumpy terrain.

In addition, you should also bring a flashlight because it will be dark inside the cave and there might not be enough sunlight that can reach the ground. You will also need this to see clearly when you explore the cave because some parts of it do not have any light source at all.

Prepare all equipment needed for caving. This includes a helmet, boots, gloves and so on. You can choose ones that have the right size for your body because if you wear small equipment while going to caving, it will be hard for you to explore the cave.

You should also prepare a change of clothes because after exploring a cave with water and mud everywhere, there is a high chance that your clothes will get dirty and you might not be able to wear them anymore.

It is also recommended that you prepare a first aid kit. There can be many types of injuries that happen during caving such as skin irritation, fracture, scratches and so on.

Do not forget to bring some food with you because it will take several hours before you reach the place where you can spend the night after exploring the cave. It would also be nice if you bring some snacks to eat when you are still inside the cave.

If you are going caving in a group, make sure that every person is accompanied by at least one person who is experienced with exploring caves. Do not forget to discuss with your guide about how long it will take for you to explore the entire cave before starting the journey.

Bring a minimum of around 2 people with you. If there is only one person, it would be scary for him/her to explore the cave alone and he/she will need more help if they get into difficulties during the journey.
