(Prof. Karamat Rajput) Having been on a visit to Virginia, USA, my host was kind enough to drive me to Luray Caverns about 40 km from the Hotel Econo Lodge where we had been staying. We were given concessional rates for being a columnist. If you happen to be in Virginia & you don’t visit Luray Caverns, it is as good a wastage as can be imagined. These spectacular caverns have easy access.

Luray Caverns remains open every day of the year.

Tourists depart in groups about every twenty minutes and the walk lasts about or for an hour. General Admission includes Luray Caverns, the Car & Carriage Caravan Museum, Toy Town Junction, and the Luray Valley Museum. Luray Caverns now have step-free! approach. The steps that lead tourists from the Entrance Lobby into the caverns are now bypassed by a looping covered walkway and a 164 feet corridor that was excavated into the hillside adjacent to the Entrance Building.

The cave Luray is the largest and most popular caverns in Eastern America. Luray Caverns, originally called Luray Cave, is a cave just west of Luray, Virginia, United States. It has drawn millions of visitors since its discovery in 1878. The cavern system is generously adorned with speleothems such as columns, mudflows, stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, and mirrored pools.

A path through Luray Caverns is relatively longer. The whole tour takes about an hour with numerous stops but for some visitors, it may be tiring. The trail goes moderately up or down at some places and ends with stairs going up. Most of the path is, however, friendly. Besides being well developed for the visitors, these are spectacular monuments, designed by nature itself.
