The Cave Tour

Distance: 6 km (a little over 3 miles)
Duration: 4-6 hours

Meeting at the Aggtelek Ticket Office, tour participants will walk with their guide 2 km (in each direction) to the cave entrance. Approximately 2-3 hours will be spent exploring a 2 km section of the cave. The curative effect of the Béke cave’s air was recognised very early, and in 1969 it was declared the first therapeutic cave in the country. Respiratory illnesses may be relieved by breathing the cave air. This adventurous tour requires good stamina, but the fantastic insight into this subterranean world is well worth the effort. Highlights include red and white “flag” formations, drapes, pure white cascading pools created by a series of tufa dams leading to the Rope Ladder Siphon, and of course the Orange Torrent and Red Chamber.
