What do the rivers of stalactites in Xplor consist of?
The stalactite rivers of Xplor are part of the longest underground river system in the world, which were formed more than 65 million years ago when an asteroid hit the Yucatan Peninsula. On the earth's surface, the crater basin began to fill with water that infiltrated, eroding the limestone and thus the large, millenary caves and rivers of stalactites were born.
