 CAVES

Caves are natural underground cavities formed by the corrosive effects exerted by the water mainly on the subsoil limestone and other types of rocks. These groundwater cavities are created, depending on the volume of the mountain, the territories of the carbonate rocks, the stratigraphy, the fissures, and the volume of rainfall. When these is constant movement of water then we refer to them as underground rivers.
