Ready For A Ride Into The “Swallow Rock?”
Yes, it’s a rock that “swallows” you whole, and sends you into a secret cave!
Pedra Que Engole is a rock in Brazil that “swallows” swimmers!
I found this story originally at The Daily Mail, and here is how they describe the phenomenon:
“Tourists are flocking to a Brazilian beauty spot where a boulder swallows you whole before spitting you out into a dark, secret cave.
The Pedra Que Engole – or Swallow Rock – is located in Trindale, in the state of Rio de Janeiro.”
What appears to be a small waterfall running through the rock is actually something amazing, as The Daily Mail describes:
“Daredevils have found that by squeezing your body into the cavity between the group of rocks, the water will send you into a secret cave.
And in the process thrillseekers are pushed through by the water in a mini slide.
Then the explorer will find themselves in private, hidden cave big enough for around four people.”
Check out this video:
So, daredevils, here’s my question:
Would you let the rock “swallow” you?
I’m not sure I would, but I applaud all who do it!
This is just one of the amazing places on earth that I’d love to see – like these guys:
These amazing statues are on Rapa Nui, and I’d love to see them in person – see how you can too by clicking here:
Of course, you have to take a plane to get to exotic islands, and imagine if you landed like this!
Yes, you can almost reach up and touch the landing wheels! See where this amazing beach is by clicking here:
Let me know if you’d go into this “suck hole” for a watery adventure of a lifetime!

This does sound pretty amazing, John. How do people get back out of the cave?
Looks a bit too claustrophobic for my liking.
Not for me. I’d be terrified!
Not for the faint of heart. But would be cool to see.
Omg I don’t know if I could make myself do it! PS: on a side note- is Kelly in the running to take over someone’s show?
Knowing my luck, the rock would move! 🙂
They are all braver than me, John.
Best wishes, Pete.
I don’t think I could let myself get sucked in to this rock!
