  1. WOW. these are just incredible. i have to admit that i don’t feel comfortable underground. still, seeing these would make it worth the trip! thanks for sharing!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. I’ve been to the Reed Flute Cave in Guilin, China and I probably wouldn’t have put it at the top of the list. It’s a nice cave, but the lights are slightly kitch (I’ve got a shot of it here with less colours: http://www.momentaryawe.com/?p=710

    One of the most impressive caves I have been to was Gomantong Cave in Borneo where they collect the edible bird nests.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
