You will have to explore multiple locations in order to farm multiple resources in ARK Survival Ascended and caves are one of the prestigious places offering valuable resources and hidden artifacts. Not only this, you can also battle against dangerous bosses to kill them and pick their drops. 

Some of the caves are required to access the Tek Cave, the final dungeon where you can face the ultimate boss of the game. However, it can be tiring just going out without any directions and trying to find caves and thus, here are all the locations of caves in ARK Survival Ascended.

  • Tek Cave: Tek cave is the entrance to the final challenge of the game, where you can fight the Overseer, the mysterious entity that controls the ARK.
