We reached Belum caves at around 10.30AM. On reaching there we came to know that due to heavy rains we can access only part of the cave.
Timings: 10 AM – 5 PM
Entrance fees: INR 65 for Indians and INR around 300 for foreign nationals.
Once we obtained the tickets at the counter, we went along with the local guide to explore the caves. The limestone has pours inside so the guide said that there are no breathing problems inside. We hardly spent 1hr here since most of the cave was drowned in water :(. Guide asked us to come back in March to be able to see the full cave. It seems Belum came to scientific attention in 1884 by a British surveyor, Robert Bruce Foote and from 1982 to 1984, a team of German speleologists headed by H. Daniel Gebauer conducted a detailed exploration of the caves.Today, 3.5 km (2.2 mi) of the caves have been successfully explored, though only 1.5 km (0.9 mi) is accessible to visitors.
