Not that far from Meyrueis town (you are already used to the very winding roads if you reached this town) in the Gorge de Tarn. Certainly worth a visit as this is one of the best caves I have seen (guided visits only), and also take some time to stroll around the main entrance to get some nice views of the gorge.

Very deep cave with very impresive large scale formations. A lot of steps down in the cave which you have climb up again so you need to be reasonably fit. Guide could not speak English but gave me a printed numbered guide in English which corresponded to numbers in the cave. Cold inside you will need at least a warm top to be comfortable. View of the gorge from the ticket office is nearly as good as the cave. Easy drive to location.

Very close to Meyrueis, road easy to drive, outstanding, slightly cold down there so be ready. Guides are nice, informative and punctual. Not much of physical efforts. Comparable to other world famous Grotto .if u are in the area you should go. After the visit you can enjoy the view of the cliffs and the mountains and relax with a cup of hot chocolate.

Ideally placed between the Tarn Gorges.
Inside, an hour-long guided tour takes you through the largest cave in the Causses and Cévennes regions, renowned for its incredible natural colours (the pink cave), the variety of its concretions and its “petrified waterfall”, a rock curtain that is unique in the world covering 2,000 square metres.

One cannot but be in awe of nature when one sees its hidden beauty in a cave such as this one near Meyrueis. The formations and colours, enhanced by the sympathetic lighting, were truly brilliant and the guide was very informative. However, if one cannot understand French then the leaflet in English is a must although the structures almost speak for themselves. It is also necessary to be reasonably fit and mobile and have appropriate footwear as the steep descent into the bowels of the earth and the climb back up, both by well constructed steps and walkways, is quite challenging. A very necessary rest afterwards can be taken in the small café on site, with its panoramic view of the gorge.
