Get ready to journey to the center of the Earth on an adventure down into the depths of these gorgeous Texas caverns. Out in the beautiful, wild countryside lies the most beautiful hidden Caverns of Sonora. For a trip you will never forget, you need to check out this wondrous cavern of secret treasures beneath the Texas landscape.
The Caverns of Sonora are a series of stunning crystal corridors located 155 feet below the surface of the earth. Guided by expert cavern tour guides, you get to explore miles of gorgeous cave passages that are all untouched and preserved by nature. You will discover an array of rock formations, underground pools, and much more.
Risk-taking adventurers can also choose to take their off-trail tour which takes their guests to the deep, dark pits of the caverns by rappelling down 50 feet into the Devil's Pit. The tour takes about 4 hours to get through, and you'll be climbing, hiking, crawling, and exploring through some of the most secluded, natural caverns in all of Texas.
Get your hiking shoes on because there will be a lot of movement and physical activity involved with exploring these insanely cool caverns. And please leave your bags in the car because nothing is allowed in the preserved caverns besides your body and a camera. This is a real natural experience!
They also have some above ground activities like panning for gold and other precious gems, along with checking out the gift shop for some gorgeous one-of-a-kind souvenirs.
The Caverns of Sonora are located at 1711 Pvt Rd 4468, Sonora, TX 76950. They lie 15 miles southwest of Sonora, Texas on I-10. This is the perfect road trip spot for this summer or a great rest stop in between your trip on your way to Big Bend! You can visit their website here for more information.
