#2 of 15 in Nature in Georgia
New Athos Cave was known for many years simply as "bottomless pit." At approximately 1,000,000 cubic m (35,314,667 cubic ft), this cave system is a must for professional and amateur speleologists alike. The caves are made up of nine enormous chambers, each containing geological features including underground rivers and lakes, large stalactites and stalagmites, seemingly bottomless ravines, waterfalls, and oddly shaped deposits. For the protection and preservation of the cave, you'll use a railway that takes you to three stops, where you can get out and travel along walkways to take in the sights. Wear shoes with a good grip and a jacket, as it can be cold in the caves. By using our New Athos day trip website , you can arrange your visit to New Athos Cave and other attractions in New Athos.

    If you expect to arrive, buy a ticket and after 5-10 minutes to admire the cave-chances are that you have not come out. The cave allowed groups of parties. It so happened that in our case, the empty seats were later 2:00. Entrance 500 r. + shooting 1 EUR Down luck cool:) trolley Honestly, for the first time was in a cave and I guess it's not my ... as that represented more colorful and staloktity on juicier. I am glad to see that the cars are changing, in a cave set audio equipment, lighting, CCTV, changing stainless steel railings-money spent on tickets go to the cause. One of the few places equipped technologically and in terms of security. CASS in the lobby with free Wi-Fi ... current tssss:))

    Parking fee 100rub. From the "guard" would be ohranit'sja. For 100 USD sells dubious kind of pieces of paper with the inscription "150 rub". Polurabotajushhij toilet under parking (no other) with bomzhevatymi hamovatymi and aunt at the entrance. Apparently bottle collecting. The entrance to the cave of 500 rubles. The right photography 50 rubles. Cave "made in USSR". From the modern flag of only drew. Nature is beautiful, worth a look. But on tours and heavily drunk and someone had SMOKED in the cave ...
