Waitomo a “World’s Most Breath-taking Cave”

One of the world’s twelve most remarkable caves on the planet includes the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, located in Waikato in the North Island of New Zealand, according to BusinessInsider. The caves are thought to have formed over 30 million years ago and were first discovered in 1887. Visitors today can take a boat ride through the caves and see thousands of glowworms, which look like tiny stars in the darkness.

Other caves in the list of top 12 include Thailand’s Emerald Cave where visitors must swim 230 feet in complete darkness to reach the cave’s private beach, the world’s largest cave, the Son Doong Cave in Vietnam, and caves in Austria, Bermuda, France, Italy, Mexico and Scotland.
