As per sources Belum Caves are the largest and longest cave system in India open for the tourists. The second largest caves in India after the Krem Liat Prah in Meghalaya and famous for their unique formations. Till date more than three and a half kilometres of the cave has been successfully explored of which only a kilometer and half is accessible to common tourists.

Belum Caves was in my wish list since a long time but the right season to visit is during peak winters and due to miss management of times from last few years I was missing it. Yes, you heard it right peak winter since Belum Caves becomes very hot as it’s a underground tunnel and apart from entrance there is no other way for air to get inside for which inside temperature increases due to heat entrapment.
