Permits are normally issued for a 24 hour period. If you are staying locally and likely to be visiting the cave on consecutive days, you should add a trip end date. Please note, a permit covering multiple days does NOT allow you to camp in the cave.

If you require an annual permit, please apply to the Permit Secretary by email.
