We had a lovely trip to the Lehman Caves. We were coming from Utah, but passed by Great Basin National Park to stay the night in Ely. We got up early in the morning to catch the 9am tour of the caves. Unlike most caves we have been in, there is a lot of man made history in these ones.... More

If you find yourself in the area, do not miss these caves. They are simply amazing. Tours are conducted by very knowledgeable Park Service personnel, with many interesting facts given during the tour. Not advisable if you are claustrophobic.

The caverns contain some of the coolest formations I've seen in caves. We took the longer tour which I would advise. The shorter one does not go in as deep and you would miss out on a couple of really interesting stories...and MY favorite alcove! Our guide was great and very willing to answer questions. There are lots of narrow... More

The caves are located just outside Baker, NV, close to the junction of Hwy 50, Hwy 93, and Hwy 6. They are part of National Parks system and a charge is involved. The experience is well worth the small fee. A Ranger leads the tours through the caverns. A 90 minute and a 60 minute tours are offered, we took... More

This is not a particularly large cave, but the formations are beautiful! Ranger Dustin lead us on the tour and he gave us lots of history, pointed out some special formations and sprinkled his talk with humor. We did the 90 minute tour and it is well worth the time! The visitors center has two short films about the area,... More

I had never been inside a cave before until this, and I enjoyed every second! The day we went it was blistering hot (around 95 F – for a Canadian that is hot!). When we went inside, the cool air was a relief as the cave is always 50 F. The tour maybe had 10 people in total, which was... More

My family traveled out here to explore the area and climb Wheeler Peak. We decided to do the cave tour on the spur of the moment and couldn't have been happier. Turned out to be the highlight of the day. and that's saying something as Wheeler was amazing!If you're in the area I absolutely advise seeing Lehman Cave. Amazing formations,... More

You are in one of the most remote locations in the U.S. so why not visit the caves and get even farther off the beaten path. Some tour guides are more knowledgeable than others. Ask first you'll get even more out of the tour.
