A cave is a large space underground that is formed by natural processes and is large enough for a human being to enter. They form by natural weathering of rocks and from the opening they can extend several miles underground. Caves are formed and develop over a long time by a process known as speleogenesis. Their formation is normally influenced by geologic processes such as tectonic forces, chemical processes, and intensive erosion by water, atmospheric factors and pressure. Caves are of different sizes, and from acceptable estimation the maximum depth of a cave can be up to a maximum of 3,000 meter, but cannot exceed there since it can collapse due to the pressure of the underlying rocks.
