Caving - Alfredo Jahn

Less than an hour from Caracas, near to the towns of Curiepe and Birongo (Miranda State), is the Alfredo Jahn Cave. This cave has a lot of galleries dug into a limestone formation. The “Casupal” and “Cambural” rivers have developed an intricate net of tunnels, which have made this place one of the largest caves among Venezuela’s natural features.

Explored for the first time by members of the Venezuelan Spelunking Association, the Alfredo Jahn Cave has a series of galleries that form an interconnected net of corridors, allowing visitors to enjoy the breathtaking elements of this environment, such as stalagmites and stalactites. The most famous of these formations is a “column” (a union of a stalactite with a stalagmite) named “The Chaguaramo”.

The main attraction of this cave is the fact of the “Casupal River” runs throughout all its galleries, and in some places the water forms beautiful waterfalls and pools, inviting visitors to take a refreshing bath, especially attractive after having traversed the soft mud of some of the cave’s narrower tunnels.
