Inside The Longest Cave in the World: Mammoth Cave. Inside The Longest Cave in the World: Mammoth Cave (Domes & Dripstones Tour) - Mammoth cave is the longest cave in the world. Even if you combine the 2nd longest and the 3rd longest caves in the world, Mammoth cave would still be longer.
There are 400 miles of explored tunnels in Mammoth Cave and they believe 200 more miles of tunnels are yet to be discovered. With this, there is no shortage of tours for this cave.
We took the Domes and Dripstones tour. This is not an easy tour to do. This was rated "moderate" due to the number of steps involved to get down 250 feet below sea level. There are 500 steps. There was also a 4-mile bus ride we had to take to take us to the entrance of the cave. The entrance was in a giant sink hole.
In this video, you can hear the Park ranger narrating about the cave. We hope you learn something too. One of the problems the cave is experiencing is the algae/pollution that we as tourists bring in the cave. We are altering the food source of the animals and insects inside the cave. The park service is trying to eliminate this by using a different type or light and trying to clean them.
We understand that the video is a bit dark, but we hope that you still get to see some of the formations (stalactites and stalagmites and columns) that we saw down there, such as the frozen niagara.
WHO ARE WE?
We, Irwin and Victorina, have decided to quit our jobs, sell everything we have and go on an epic road trip of visiting all U.S. National Parks! Follow our journey - from letting go of our material possessions, preparing for the extended camping trip, and even the mistakes, joys, doubts and adventures we make along the way! We hope to inspire others to appreciate the beauty of Planet Earth.
Adventure begins in Feb 2017. We estimate this road trip will take us approximately 12 to 16 months. We know we will some amazing places and meet a lot of interesting people.
If you have an idea or suggestions for us for places to visit along the way, feel free to contact us!
NEW VIDEOS every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. If we miss a day, it is probably because we had no phone signal inside the park or we couldn't find any wifi access. If this is the case, we will upload our video as soon as we get any phone signal.
