Owner description: Natural Splendor along the Swatara.Like many caverns in the Mid-Atlantic states, Indian Echo Caverns is a limestone cave. Cut through Beekmantown limestone, which is over 440 million years old, they were formed through the erosive properties of water. As time progressed, geological forces led to an "uplift" of the surrounding limestone, eventually allowing more and more water to flow through the formation. As the water flowed over the limestone, it began to create small crevices, these small crevices led to larger ones, and eventually, over a series of millions of years, it created the caverns as they are today.The temperature inside the caverns is 52 degrees year around.

No elevator and lots of stairs. Cool caverns to tour and interesting history. Check out the box that was found in the cavern inside the gift shop.

Having toured 3 other caverns recently, this one is just average. FYI - There is not an elevator (yes some caverns have them) so the steep 71 steps up and down can be formidable. I would not personally recommend children under 8 taking tour unless very interested in caverns. I left half way thru with very bored kindergartener while spouse... More

We went to see the caverns late Saturday morning. There weren't very many people there, we had about 15 in our tour group. Our tour guide was Maggie. She was great! So informative and friendly. She really made the experience worth it. After she went over some "rules", she took us down about 70+ steps. Gave us some history about... More

This is a nice place to visit if you are in the Hershey, PA area. They are open everyday (except for major holidays) and do many tours throughout the day. It is about 45 minutes long and is an easy to moderate activity level. The cost is $12 each for adults. You go down about 70 steps to the cavern... More

After a weekend in Hershey we decided to visit the cavern on our way home. Though the cavern is small, the staff do a great job of taking visitors on a guided tour. The cavern shows some of the basic geologic features you find in any cavern but it's the guides that make it fun. The guides really make it... More

Excellent tour. Maggie was funny and very informative. Great history lesson and beautiful cavern. Just a few miles from Hershey. Seventy-one easy steps down to entrance. Blood pumper and knee tester on the way back up. Fun for anytime of year.

it was a beautiful day outside and nice and cool outside. Our guide was very informative and had a great sense of humor. The caverns were beautiful. I really liked it when he shut the lights out to show us total darkness. The climb back up can be rough for some people. My only complaint was the guide never mentioned... More
