The temperature inside the caverns remains fairly constant, around 58 degrees due to the fact that they are in the interior part of a mountain. The caverns formed from a deposit of shady dolomite at the base of Humpback Mountain in Linville. Guided tours are given daily and you can photograph the stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over the millions of years. Visitors are asked not to touch the subterranean formations as they are highly sensitive to the oils on our bodies and are still actively forming.
