Bethnel Caverns.

Somewhere in this world exists a series of caves in which behemoths run rampant. Many a legionary have lost their lives against the brutal beasts, so I might discourage you from spelunking lest you meet a similarly grim fate.

Bethnel Caverns (ベスネル鍾乳洞, Besuneru Shōnyūdō?) is a dungeon near the town of Meroë in the Meroë Region in Final Fantasy Type-0. It can first be visited in Chapter 5.

Class Zero meet Akane in the cave's entrance who already appeared in the entrance of Corsi Cave, claiming that her boyfriend turned into a frog and only a "maiden's kiss" could restore his original appearance. She asks—however—for 40 Smalt Phantoma in exchange for a DEF Enhancer. After visiting the Valley of Monsters, her boyfriend, O'yah, is healed, and if spoken to at Bethnel Caverns alludes to O'aka XXIII from Final Fantasy X.

The Dungeon Master's Dare[]

Shigeto from Meroë challenges Class Zero to fight a Behemoth to prove if they have the makings of a true dungeon master in The Dungeon Master's Dare task. The task is available after the Covering the Cadets Expert Trial or in chapter 7. The suggested level for the task is 55 but the cadets will likely be able to fell a Behemoth on a lower level. The reward for the task is an Ignis Magnum accessory.

Slayer's Spoils V[]

The Armory Guildsman of Akademeia asks Class Zero to fetch him two chunks of Beast Flesh in Slayer's Spoils V. Beast Flesh is dropped by Behemoths. The task is available during the second free time period in chapter 5. The reward for the task is a Gold Bangle accessory.

An Education in Love II[]

To craft a ring worthy of his love, Tokito from Akademeia bids Class Zero to retrieve some Diamond Ore from the Bethnel Caverns in An Education in Love II. The task is available during the second free time period on Akademeia fountain square. The reward for the mission is a Good-Luck Charm.
