¿De qué se trata?

Set in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Jenolan boasts an Australia's large and spectacular cave system with some very old caves. This is Jenolan's most beautiful cave. The visual impact of its richly decorated chambers will astonish.

Jenolan was a protected reserve long before the Orient Cave was discovered. So, its natural beauty has been completely preserved.

The Orient is regarded as one of Jenolan's less strenuous caves, with only 358 stair steps. So the tour guide can take visitors into this cave at an easy pace.

The tour starts at the 'Binoomea Cut', a man-made shortcut into the Orient Cave. Following this tunnel, the group enters the Orient Cave via a small but beautiful chamber known as 'Bat End'.

From there, the group heads upwards to the dramatic 'Persian Chamber'. Many consider this the most beautiful chamber at Jenolan. The walls and roof are completely draped in long calcite crystal formations - stalagmites, stalactites, columns, shawls and straws - in breathtaking array. The height of the chamber is just over 30m. The tallest stalagmite at Jenolan is in this chamber.

The group descends into 'The Well', from where they can view the 'Persian Chamber' from a deeper perspective.

Then, they move into the 'Egyptian Chamber', home to the second largest shawl at Jenolan. As the tour descends from the Egyptian Chamber, they pass a small, but exquisite chamber known as 'The Jungle'.

Finally, the group comes to 'The Indian Chamber', which is viewed from two levels. From the top level they get an excellent view of one of our most famous formations, 'The Indian Canopy'. At the bottom of the chamber the group views 'The Crystal Basin', a large, beautiful formation which sometimes fills with pure water.
