Sculpted from the Earth over a hundred million years, Mammoth Cave is a daunting labyrinth of contorted tunnels, passageways, vertiginous shafts and cathedral-like chambers – all immersed in darkness. This subterranean wonderland of towering limestone pinnacles and glittering gypsum is a place in which to marvel at nature’s artistry – or get lost in forever.

Indeed, the underground tunnels that comprise Mammoth Cave (properly known as the Mammoth-Flint Ridge Cave System) are known to extend for at least 400 miles beneath the rugged karst hills of central Kentucky. Mammoth is, in fact, the longest known cave system on the planet – twice as long as Mexico’s Sac Actun.
