These are incredible. I have to see that cave in China. Been to Batu Caves in KL and Saba Borneo has incredible Caves as well.
@Carrie, are you talking about the cave on Cat Ba Island in Ha Long Bay? That was a great one as well. so many awesome caves it is hard to choose.
A lot of time it is just all about the lighting, but I tend to like the more authentic and rustic caves. Exploring them with a headlamp like we did in Laos.

The Longest Way Home

The underground caves in Sagada, in the Philippines are pretty amazing for underground traversing. Lots of rope climbing and getting wet. Very much for those looking for a great memory!

Some caves in Central France and Spain (and probably elsewhere) have superb and ancient cave paintings of buffalo and horses.


I would Postojna and Škocjan caves and in Slovenia. Škocjan is a UNESCO world heritage site and creeping on a tiny bridge across the giant underground canyon feels like something out of Lord of the Rings.

Penn’s Cave in Pennsylvania may not be up there with Carlsbad but it’s an interesting cave and well worth the visit. It’s different from the other caves I’ve visited in that you tour the cave in a boat.




what about the caves in bend on 27th street?


Could you e-mail the pictures of the caves on this site to me?


How about 11 KM long Ali-Sadr Cave the world’s largest water cave in Hamadan, iran
