Discover Historic Crystal Cave in Lehigh Valley, one of Pa's greatest natural wonders, named after the shining calcium crystals that were carved slowly by nature through the passage of time. Visitors will enjoy a 55-minute guided and interpretive tour, after a brief movie showcasing the history of Pennsylvania’s first show cave and the geology of caves. Trained and courteous guides will lead you through an array of spectacular milky white stalactites, stalagmites, pillar & dripstone formations enhanced by indirect lighting.
Marvels of stone sculptury include the Cathedral Chamber, Prairie Dogs, Giant’s Tooth, the Ear of Corn and Tobacco Leaves, the Natural Bridge, Indian Head, Totem Pole, and the Crystal Ballroom. Flowstone occurs when dripping water containing minerals run down the walls of the cave or spreads out over the rocks. Concrete walks and steel railings ensure your safety through your descent 125 feet underground.
