Caves are generally found to be musty, damp, and incredibly dark. Most people don’t want to spend their time in one – at least longer than they actually have to be. Most caves are teeming with uncountable numbers of wildlife, including bugs, bats, and sometimes even bears. They are made of crystal, marble, rock, and more. However, they are more than simple holes found within the ground of the Earth. Some of them are truly incredible. Here are ten truly inspiring caves around the world. We’d definitely like to visit a couple of things, though we’re unsure of what lurks in the dark.
