AAA Editor Notes
King's Palace Tour departs from the underground rest area in Carlsbad Cavern. This 1.5-hour tour covers 1 mile and descends to the deepest part of the cavern open to the public, 830 feet below the surface. Cave formations include helictites, draperies, columns and soda straws. Park rangers conduct blackouts during the tour, turning off the artificial lights briefly to underscore the cavern's natural darkness.

Note: The tour is limited to a maximum of 40 participants and requires walking up a very steep hill at the conclusion.

Admission
(in addition to cavern admission fee) $8; $4 (ages 4-15). Ages 0-3 are not permitted. Cavern admission, valid for 3 days, $12; free (ages 0-15). Reservations are required.
Hours
Tours depart daily at 10:30. Closed Jan. 1, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
