Belum Caves are situated in vicinity of the Belum Village. These are considered as the second largest caves in the country, after the Meghalaya Caves. The caves have three cavities, amongst which the central cavity serves as the entrance to the caves. These have numerous chambers, fresh water galleries and passages. The natural artworks formed by stalagmite and stalactite can be seen in the caves.

The musical chamber, simhadwaram, patalaganga, mandapam, meditation hall and banyan tree hall are the main sections of these caves. Patalganga is considered as the deepest section of the Belum Caves. The Government of India declared the Belum Caves as a 'Unique Eco-Tourism Project.'

"Underground Fun Mania" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
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 you 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.

"Adventurous experience"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
One of the largest in India and second largest caves in world. Explored by German persons with many places made a route clearly, now with not much burden to the visitors, I visited before and after renovating the routes inside. Still you feel the adventurous, worth visiting, will have a nice experience.

"An amazing place to visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
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 an amazing place to visit. Everyone 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 amount they can pay. This is my personal experience. Please visit this place.

"A walk below the earth"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 19, 2015
Belum Caves, probably India's second longest caves. A different experience from normal tour. Around 3 KMS walk into the earth with stalagmites and small waterfall 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 before entering the cave. Wear a good gripping shoe, some parts are slippery.

"3.5 km long at 150 feet deep in Earth Crust"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jun 26, 2015
A visit to Belum caves will always leave me Astonished for the mesmerizing beauty it holds. Being Longest caves in plains of Indian Subcontinent with Stalagmite and stalactite formations, also fresh water chambers, Oxygen chambers, Kotilingala Chamber, Saptaswaralu Guha or Musical Chamber, Dhyan Mandir or Meditation Hall, Thousand Hoods, Banyan Tree Hall etc.

Make sure you wear cotton wear, to escape from Extreme Sweating, also walk slowly at a constant pace to conserve energy, since few chambers of cave involves in activities like crawling.

A constant temperature of 30 degree centigrade is maintained at any and every spot in the cave. With an increase in the percentage of humidity every 10 feet under, these oxygen shafts give relief.

Oxygen chambers are also provided by AP Tourism Development Corporation at various points inside caves.

The Belum Caves were declared as protected area by the Government of Andhra Pradesh in 1988, so Littering, Damaging and any other activities involving in Defaming/Destroying the caves will be considered as a serious offense and are liable for legal action.
