  • Description

    Depart from NYC and head to Virginia State, our first sightseeing at this journey is the most stunning and largest cave of the east coast, the Luray Caverns, which is a National Natural Landmark of the United States. The underground cavern system is generously adorned withspeleothems(columns, mud flows,stalactites,stalagmites,flowstone, mirrored pools, etc.) The path that goes through Luray Caverns starts at the entrance.

    Next it curves throughout the caverns and there is a spring of water called Dream Lake. Stalactites are reflected in the water making them appear to be Stalagmites. This illusion is often so convincing that people are unable to see the real bottom. The caverns are perhaps best known forthe Great Stalacpipe Organ, alithoponemade from solenoid fired strikers that tapstalactitesof various sizes to produce tones similar to those ofxylophones,tuning forks, orbells. (If the Luray Cavern is closed, we will go to Shenandoah Cavern instead.)

    We will spend the day exploringChattanooga, TNand the surrounding area. Lookout Mountain, the historic hilltop on the southern border of Tennessee, has a colorful history as a place of importance during wartime. Most notably, it was the centerpiece of the Battle of Lookout Mountain during the American Civil War. Driving through Lookout Mountain, a natural wonder gradually reveals its beauty - Ruby Falls, a breathtaking 145-foot underground waterfall. It is located over 1,120 feet below the surface of Lookout Mountain. It is fed by rainwater and underground springs and the water from the falls eventually flows into the Tennessee River. Next, we will take a tour inside the Rock City - On the top of the Rock City, it is said seven neighboring states might be seen from Lover's Leap - you can find out whether it is true or not. However, we are sure you will be amazed by the breathtaking panoramic views of natural landscape, massive ancient rock formations, and gardens with over 400 native plant species. Then an exciting ride on Lookout Mountain Incline Railway awaits you. This tram has been running almost continually since 1895 and with the exception of an engine update in 1911, it hasn't changed very much in more than 100 years of operation. The ride stretches about one mile up the mountain and the incline reaches a breathtaking 72.7% grade – almost straight up!Enjoy the “America’s Most Amazing Mile” aboard!

It is said that till 1774, just before the American Revolution and writing of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson purchased 157 acres of land including the Natural Bridge from King George III of England for 20 shillings. The bridge was called by Thomas Jefferson “the most sublime of nature's works”. Virginia's Natural Bridge has been fascinating travelers for hundreds of years.
