About one year ago during my trip of Ardehal I also visited this cave. I remember that was located in Ardehal’s mountains. There we also visited other caves in this beautiful place. We had great experience there. That cave was a collection of real amazing sights in it. There were a lot of water resources.

this is world's largest salty cave.
