Ali Sadr Cave, Hamadan
(4.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Get on a boat and ride the underground river that flows through Ali Sadr Cave--the biggest water cave on earth. The old engraving at the entrance suggests that the cave was first discovered in the sixth century BCE, only to be forgotten and found again in 1978 by a shepherd looking for a lost goat. The cave system features 11 km (6.8 mi) of chambers and hallways, several deep lakes, the roof covered in crystals and stalactites, as well as colorful stalagmites shaped like umbrellas and cauliflowers. The wall paintings of animals and hunting scenes near the exit and archeological findings indicate that prehistoric humans lived in the cave 12,000 years ago.

  • Ali sadr Cave is best cave in iran. The cave has beautiful rock and stones.The temperature is constant throughout the year.Sailing in the beautiful reef is awesome. 
  • We visited on many places in the world caves, but these are really something special. Not the stalactites or stalagmites, called the forms and ways in which the stalactite formations are formed. First we doubted whether the cave the 700,000 rial (25 US $) would be worth, but it really pays. First there is a 15 ' boat trip, then a walk, at your own pace, and as the last 20 ' boat trip. We were almost 2 h in the cave. Simply beautiful

  • 阿里薩德洞穴基本上就像我們的鐘乳石洞一般 裡面溶蝕的空間很大也非常壯觀 溫度本來就低的冬天來這邊有點替自己找罪受 離哈瑪丹市區有點距離, 包車過來比較簡單, 但要先講好價錢
