Borra Caves, Visakhapatnam

4.5
Head down into the atmospheric depths of a naturally formed limestone cave system at Borra Caves. Probably around 150 million years old, the caves were first written about and documented in 1807 by British geologist William King. The erosive force of flowing water, along with chemical reactions, cut the system and created a number of interesting geological features, including stalagmites and stalactites. Nowadays, lighting illuminates the rock formations atmospherically, adding to the mystical and mythical feel of the site.
