... a green canopy of tree ferns and vines and trees shelter a narrow path cut into the side of the gorge. It was an easy fairly level walk and we soon reached the old railway bridge over the river and then plunged into the long dark tunnel under the road and through the mountain. It was cold and drippy and dimly lit at intervals, the torches were needed again to avoid the puddles on the floor.
