“one of the most spectacular places on earth!”
Boyden Cavern is located in Kings Canyon, Giant Sequoia National Monument, one of the most beautiful and spectacular places on earth. Fortunately it's not as well known or traveled as Yosemite or the Grand Canyon, making for a more peaceful and less disturbed feel. Boyden Cavern lies beneath the massive 2,000 foot high marble walls of the famous Kings Gates. It is a magnificent cavern with many varieties of natural speleothems, including rare "shield" formations. Visitors are delighted to find that spectacular beauty above ground is complimented by natural beauty underground. Popular features include The Pancake Room, a stalactite group called the Upside Down City, the Bat Grotto where bats spend summer days sleeping, and a flowstone formation called Mother Nature's Wedding Cake. The Drapery Room contains large drapery stalactites, long soda straws and twisting crystalline helictites. Speleothems have developed to resemble familiar objects, as with the Taco Shell formations, the Baby Elephant & Mom stalagmites, and the Christmas Tree. There is also a subterranean stream and many other unique features.
Such an interesting place to visit! It includes everything! Adventures, natural creations, wildlife exhibits, even a pancake room!
Just right at the Kings Canyon, this place is a must for the whole family. Dozens of people were visiting the place when we went and it got a bit tight, but still it was a great experience for all of us. What you get to see while being there is totally natural and gorgeous.!
