Still in the Palaeolithic period it served as a refuge for people, as evidenced by tools found in the cave, made of silicon, as well as products made of stone and bones. Devetashka Cave is open for visiting as part of excursions, however, it will not be possible to pass through all its sections. As a rule, sightseeing tours are limited only to visiting the main gallery, which is illuminated through seven large holes.

Other parts of the cave are impassable due to the rapid flow of rivers. For their research, special equipment is needed. There is another important feature of the cave, it is home to a large colony of bats. In order not to disturb the animals, environmentalists have decided to close the cave for visiting between the beginning of June and the end of July. Tourists are advised to take warm clothes with them even in summer, the cave is always quite cold. Next - Fingals Cave
