All will enjoy these caves irrespective of their age

Belum caves will give you more excitement. If you go with friends, it is very entertaining. For children's it will be like enthusiastic. All will enjoy this caves irrespective of their age. But it can't be suitable for asthma patients that too age between 50 and above. The fees will be hardly Rs50 to Rs100. I hope you will enjoy your trip there. Happy journey.

These caves are very beautiful as Borra caves in Vizag

I visited this caves on my way to TADIPATHRI which is just 30 kms from caves....these caves are Very very attractive place in kurnool district..These caves are very beautiful as Borra caves in vizag....There are many things to see inside the caves like Meditation Room (very hot and sweats a lot here), Thousand Hoods, Mantapam, Banyan Tree Hall, Stalactites and Stalagmites in chambers and Pit holes in ceilings ..... Really it is a great place to visit..There is also a restaurant at the entrance of caves and a small shop operated by Andhra Pradesh Tourism..People who are planning to arrive kurnool dont miss these caves and me too planning to go with family this time again....

The largest tourist cave in India

Belum Caves are located near kurnool, it's around 150 kms from Kurnool. It's located in the village of kolimigundla. These caves are made of stalactite and stalagmite formations, due to flow of a river underground. At its deepest point the cave goes to almost 150 feet deep. The caves are light with soft lights and has air shaft at regular intervals. The cave has multiple sections, which are very clearly mentioned on the walls. The deepest point is called Pataalaganga, where you would see the natural water source. The cave is said to be at least a million years old. Always take a guide while visiting the caves, that gives you better understanding. The stalagmite formations have formed weird structures and looks amazingly beautiful. A must watch if you are visiting gandikota, it's only 57 kms from Gandikota.

Underground Fun Mania

The place is so good.. Most of the cave area is lighted with lamps. So the visibility is good in most places. There are facilities of ventilation too. But the actual fun is when u start exploring by yourself. the darkness and the ability to hold your breathe , your lung capacity and guts will lead to lot of unexplored areas underneath..

An amazing place to visit

We have visited the belum caves on 22.10.15. distance from the bangalore is 342 kms. This can be covered in one day. This is the amazing place to visit. Every one should visit this place. APTDC has done very good arrangements for the tourist and guides are provided free. only if any tourist feels like paying any amt they can pay. This is my personal experience. Please visit this place

A walk below the earth

Bellum caves , probably India's second longest caves. A different experience from normal tour.Around 3 KMS walk into the earth with stalagmites and small water fall to rejoice. carry a small torch .Plan the time of visit properly and pack the food, since there aren't no good restaurants nearby the place. Carry good quantity of water and wear light clothing's before entering the cave. Wear a good gripping shoe,some parts are slippery .
