Belum Caves festival planned in Dec
Belum Caves festival is expected to be held in December. It will be the first tourism festival to be held in the district after a gap of five years. The name ‘Kandanavolu Sambaralu’ has been proposed for the festival, ‘Kandanavolu’ being the original name of Kurnool. This is the largest cave system in the Indian sub-continent that is open to the public. However, minor caves around the State are more popular than Belum Caves due to better publicity. Belum Caves are the largest cave system open to the public in the Indian subcontinent and is a protected monument. They have remained unnoticed as opposed to the Borra Caves in the Araku Valley.
