Definition of the Caves :

A cave or cavern is a hollow place in the ground especially a natural underground space large enough for a human to enter. Caves form naturally by the weathering of rock and often extend deep underground. The word “cave” can also refer to much smaller openings such as sea caves, rock shelters, and grottoes.[1]

The formation and Types of the caves :

The formation of the caves is known as speleologists. Caves are formed by various geologic processes and can be variable sizes. These may involve a combination of chemical processes, erosion from water, tectonic forces, microorganisms, pressure, and atmospheric influences.[1]
