There is no long climb or elevator to visit this cave, but you have to take a tour. The 90 minute tour we took was about 45 min too long -- mostly because the guide was daffy. The chambers offer impressive shapes throughout the trails. It's entertaining to imagine the stories told about early visitors, and sadly see the graffiti... More

I had been here many years before, and wanted to bring my husband to see the beauty of this cave. There are quite a few shield formations, that are rarely found in other caves. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour quite enjoyable. They are very protective of their cave, especially with the spread of white-nose disease... More

We went on the longer cave tour. It was nice. It was easy walking. Got the very bottoms of my pants a little dirty (only because they are too long). Pretty typical cave sites. They did have some shield formations and a couple other formations that aren't as common in caves. If you have the time, I would encourage you... More

We went on the 90 mins palace room tour and it was really worth it. Our guide, an older ranger, did such a great job in telling the stories of that caves as well as explaining geological things. Its a great experience wandering through these caves and the great basin national park is definitely worth a visit just because of... More

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
