Owner description: La grotte aux mille couleurs Découvrez la plus grande grotte des Causses et des Cévennes. Site classé*** Cette grotte vivante aux mille couleurs, de part ses teintes naturelles très accentuées, émerveille aussi par ses dimensions impressionnantes et la variété incroyable de ses concrétions. Avec son emménagement de plus d’1 km, la cavité se dévoile salle après salle: grande voûte aux fistuleuses, cascade pétrifiée unique au monde, lacs cristallins, majestueux clocher. Elle donne au visiteur, petit ou grand le sentiment d'être un explorateur, en toute sécurité. Elle s’est vue dotée d’un nouvel éclairage led- dynamique, mettant en valeur, tout en la protégeant encore davantage et de façon naturelle, les volumes et les détails jusqu’alors insoupçonnés. Des guides passionnés vous immergerons dans ce monde féerique pendant 1H30. Sa terrasse panoramique sur les gorges de la Jonte permets de passer un délicieux moment de repos.

A fabulous place to visit. Spectacular rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites. Not too pricey either

We chose this cave rather than the larger Aven Armand and were not disappointed. Good tour (ours was in French) from an overlook starting point that itself is spectacular over the Jonte.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Dargilan. The experience was great and the tour lovely. We were there with friends but the cave can be visited with children too.

Wonderful cave experience...about a 1km tour with a guide (in french - I got a sheet of paper with the basic tour and translation information that was very helpful). Beautifully lit with amazing underground natural structures and a few 'experiments' to add some humour to the tour.

Cafe, toilet, gift shop and stunning views of the Jonte Gorge to finish off with.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Dargilan, which is quite different from Aven Armand, also visited on this long weekend out from our home in the Pyrenées-Orientales. Wonderful pink colors, beautiful formations, highly recommended. Presentation is far better than at Aven Armand, no "spectacularization", rather old-fashioned, and too rushed for our taste. But not kitsch, thankfully. I can't imagine what this must be like in the height of the season. We were on the 4pm tour on the last Sunday in June, before the tourist crush. There were just 10 or 12 of us, though earlier in the day there were undoubtedly more. The guide said that in the height of summer, there are 50-70 persons in each group, with 6 groups in the place simultaneously. This would alter the entire experience. We highly recommend Dargilan.
