Caves and caverns are seen all over West Virginia wherever stone and water run into each other to carve hollows underneath the surface. But in the eastern and southern parts of West Virginia, numerous uncharted caverns have brought in caving enthusiasts from all over the globe.
Caving is an exciting yet unforgiving type of sport in West Virginia. Beyond the safety limitation of a developed cavern, non-functioning gear, unplanned destinations, or slipping on stone can make a thrilling adventure into a search-and-rescue horror. However, numerous commercial caves have been made to allow public exploration. Several caving organizations are present to aid in exploration via safe and responsible methods.
