Prof. Dr. Remzi Dilek and his team from the Department of Geological Engineering at the contributed a lot of research and scientific studies of the cave.

  • Wonder of nature. Well worth a visit. I think he advertised enough. Alanya Stalactite cave formations much larger than and as rich. Those who plan a trip to the Eastern black sea may add to. İcerisinde the wood stairs and bridges, old people and the difficulty of access for disabled people. Entry fee.
