These are the Most Beautiful and Mysterious Caves in the World

Caves are spreading deep into the heart of earth, waiting to be explored and seen. Some of them are mysterious, dangerous, deep and dark and people can only see tiny parts of them. Caves can be teeming with wildlife, as wide as a canyon, or flooded with icy water. They can be made of marble, crystal, or basalt, looking more thrilling than any themed Indiana Jones cave park you have ever seen in your life. The following would take your breath away.

1 Eisriesenwelt Cave

The Eisriesenwelt Cave in Austria is the world’s largest ice cave, with a length of almost 50 kilometers. The translation of its name means “World of the Ice Giants”. Discovered in 1879, its myriad chambers are interconnected, allowing air to flow through all chambers. This also means that the caves can get chilly, so winter wear is appropriate for every season. The ice formations are different colors due to the mineral content, making the inside scenery gorgeous and surreal.. Lamps are handed out to tourists before the tour, and sometimes the ice formations are lit with magnesium lamps for dramatic effect. But, only small part of the cave is open for tourist visits. The caves are located above Werfen Village in Salzburg.
