If you have ever wanted to run away and just escape all the chaos, you’re not the only one! While hiding out on an exotic beach is an easy go-to option for some relaxation time, have you ever imagined what it would be like to explore a spectacular one-of-a-kind hidden cave? It’s probably never crossed your mind, but that’s okay – because we’re about to introduce you to the craziest caves in the entire world! Prepare to be amazed.
1Waitomo Caves, New Zealand
If you catch yourself looking for the Big Dipper inside this vast grotto, you're not alone. But what may look like a starry night sky in this cave is actually thousands of glow worms hanging from threads of their own silk, similar to strings of Mardi Gras beads. For what purpose? Just to casually attract and trap flying insects in their silky snares. Imagine what it would be like to fall asleep gazing at this stunning sight!
2Cueva De Los Verdes, Canary Islands
This stunning grotto is actually a lava tube that was formed by flowing lava some 3,000 years ago. But perhaps the coolest part of this cave is the concert hall, located near the entrance and exit, which can hold up to 500 people at a time. In earlier times, the cave was used as the ultimate hideout for inhabitants seeking protection from European pirates and Muslim slave raiders. However, this doesn’t seem like too bad of a hiding spot!
