The community of Fackler in Alabama, USA, is home to a natural phenomenon that attracts a steady stream of visitors. It interests curious hikers, hardened cave divers and photographers.
Neversink Pit straddles a line somewhere between a sinkhole and a cave. But, however you define it, it is nothing less than extraordinary.
The 40ft wide-pit drops a staggering 162ft to its floor, making it a challenge for rappelers’ endurance.
Also, it comes replete with rare and endangered plant species and a population of bats. However, visitors find most amazing a stunning waterfall that cascades its entire 16-story depth. All these combine offer irresistible opportunities for photographers to capture some of the most interesting shots.
Reaching the pit requires a half-hour ascent of a mountain. Only tourists granted a climbing permit are allowed to do so. However, those who take the time and effort to get there will be rewarded with a sight of one of the most spectacular sinkholes in the world.
