Mini-adventures on our leisurely hikes are always a bonus, so this little treat is the perfect addition to an afternoon in nature. The Belly Of The Dragon Cave in Utah is an awesome mini tunnel that feels like a portal to another world. You can explore this cavern to add a little excitement to your adventures.\nOriginally created as a runoff for the canyons above, it is now a destination worthy of treasure hunters and thrill-seekers alike.\nIf you dare to head into the dragon's belly, this spot is definitely a must (minus maybe all the gross stuff inside an actual dragon's stomach).\nLocated in Kanab, Utah, The Belly Of The Dragon is a short hike that leads to a slot canyon on the other side.\nIt sits beneath Highway 89 and during rainstorms, the water runoff from the upper canyons diverts into the tunnel.\nMake sure to avoid this twisting cavern during rainy days, as it fills with water, making it dangerous.\nDuring dry weather, however, it is the perfect addition to a day hike in the area.\nYou can wander through the slim trail, and you might want to bring along a flashlight as once you reach the middle, this giant cavernous space can get fairly dark.\nView this post on Instagram Spooky but impressive - Belly of the dragon in Utah. #traveller #travelgram #weltenbummler #USA #discoveramerica #roadtripusa #roadtrip #reisefieber #ichwilldieganzeweltsehen #reisen #travel #nature #landscape A post shared by Natascha (@taschi_travels) on Nov 6, 2019 at 11:16am PST\nThe tunnel goes all the way through for about half of a mile, ending at a small waterfall (depending on the time of year), and is perfect for a little cave exploration.\nTo reach the tunnel, head north from Kanab for 16 miles on Highway 89. From there, it is about 1.5 miles south of Carmel Junction. Look for a dirt road on the west side of the road.\nView this post on Instagram I'm cute as a button inside a dragon's belly 🦖🐲🤣🤪 #feelingcute #utah #smallhike A post shared by Victoria Franco (@vickingaruns28) on Feb 27, 2020 at 8:31pm PST\nIt is free to explore, and you can take as much time as you want to snap some seriously cool pictures wandering through the dragon's belly.\nThe gorgeous orange stone walls look like something straight out of the Sahara desert, and could even pass for the Cave of Wonders from Aladdin.\nView this post on Instagram stepping into the belly of the dragon 🐉 shot on my @insta360 One X!
