The Best Caves from Around the World
Let us take you on a journey looking at some of the best caves from around the world.
There is something mysteriously beautiful about amazing caves. These mysterious openings are an example of nature’s endless beauty. Found deep beneath the earth’s surface, these underground crevices and cavities have captivated and mesmerized explorers and adventurers alike.
1. Kartchner Caverns, Arizona, USA
This popular state park is home to a popular “show cave” containing 2.4 miles of passages. First discovered in 1974, these 50,000-year-old caverns are carved out of limestone and filled with speleothems (secondary mineral deposits) and are still growing. The “Throne Room” feature of the caverns contains one of the world’s largest soda straw stalactites, which towers at 21 ft. 2 inches making it one of the best caves in the world.
2. The Blue Grotto, Capri Italy
This picturesque sea cave found off the coast of the Italian island of Capri is a favorite tourist destination. What makes this popular cave so unique is its spectacular blue and emerald lighting. The mouth of the cave is a mere six feet wide by three feet high. Because of this, entrance to the cave is only possible when the tides are low and the sea is calm. To enter the grotto, visitors must lie flat on the bottom of a four-person rowboat.
