The Poço Encantado ("The Enchanted Well") is another cave/undergound river system 120km away (a two hour drive) from Lençóis.

The Pictures

The map to the cave system

The stairway down... this is the easy part.
(2048 x 1536, 578k)

The not-so-easy part (30 sec long exposure). There are cables to help people in the climb/descent.

The bar at near the entrance

The folks looking at the well. It shows as black because it is much too faint to be captured with the short exposure caused by the flash.

I managed to get a shot that enhances the light ray, at the expense of everything else
(1536 x 2048, 110k)

The main cave entrance, seen from the stairway. We enter through another way.

Watch your head!
