Even though the Belum Caves were known to the locals the first records of Caves were mentioned in expedition report of Robert Bruce Foote in 1884. Thereafter Belum Caves remained unnoticed for almost a century till a German team headed by Herbert Daniel Gebauer conducted detailed exploration of the caves in 1982 and 1983. The German expedition was assisted by the locals Mr B. Chalapathi Reddy Mr Ramaswami Reddy Mr Boyu Madduleti Mr K. Padmanabhaiah Mr K. Chinnaiah and Mr A. Sunkanna.

Situated 110 km from Kurnool it is the longest cave system in the plains of India. These underground caves are located under a flat agricultural field and have three well like cavities with the central one being the main entrance. The exquisite stalactite and stalagmite formations and the imaginative colour illumination are the main attractions of the Belum Caves which were adjudged as a Unique Eco-Tourism Project by the Government of India.
