Welcome to the Virtual Tour of Lehman CavesAre you ready to head underground into Lehman Caves? Below are three links to videos that will start your virtual tour through this amazing subterranean world. These three videos should be viewed in order for the best experience. Just click on the image of the video you wish to start, and it will direct you to our YouTube page, where you can begin your adventure through this fantastic cave.
This virtual tour was created buy using LiDAR (three dimensional laser imaging) and photogrammetry (high resolution pictures of the cave). With the data from these two sources and some incredible computer software, Lehman Caves has now come to life on our screens for us to experience anywhere.

The virtual cave tour was made largely due to a LiDAR scanning project conducted in Lehman Caves in February 2020. During a two-week period, a LiDAR scanner and a high resolution color camera were moved along the cave tour route in approximately eight-foot increments. Each instrument took about 30 to 90 seconds to scan/photograph an area.
