Description

This is a pair of limestone caves that have been designated as a National Natural Landmark and are now a part of O'Bannon Woods State Park. According to Wikipedia, "The term "Wyandotte Caves" is used to refer to Wyandotte Cave (sometimes called the "Historic Cave") and Little Wyandotte Cave, also called Siberts Cave and sometimes called the "New Cave", but the two caves are completely different. They are located very close to each other, and are owned and managed by the same entity. There the resemblance ends."

The cave system is 9.2 miles long and houses Monument Mountain. At a height of 135 feet, Monument Mountain is considered the world's largest underground mountain. The cave is also home to many rare helictites as well as the tallest stalagmite in the world, the "Pillar of the Constitution."
