New Athos Cave, New Athos
(4.6/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our New Athos itinerary planner to arrange your visit to New Athos Cave and other attractions in New Athos.

  • Perhaps the best attraction in Abkhazia. Nothing in advance to book-just come and for 500 rubles you'll go on a mini Metro and take in the amazing cave. It's pretty big. By the way, there's a pretty cool, any children jacket doesn't exactly hurt. Excursion Group man 50-60, and if you want to hear something, it is better to be near the guides. More: photo inside the cave you can do free (before entering some dealers were trying to sell tickets for shooting).

  • Looked with pleasure. In Abkhazia within many mountains there are huge caves, sometimes huge river flowed directly from the rock. Looking at the Novo-Athos cave begin to understand how this is possible. All very comfortably equipped and beautifully illuminated. will try the trail again to get to the concert))) inside the Hall of the cave.

  • Be sure to visit. Not very big excursion groups booked in advance anything. Be sure to take your jackets with them was very cold)
