History


Description

(Dakhovskaya Cave) is located near Dakhovskaya village, hence the name. It is a small cave ruin at the edge of the limestone escarpment which is located east of the town Dakhovskaya. There is a nice walking trail along the escarpment which will lead to four small caves, most of them karst caves but one is obviously a tectonic cave.

Dakhovskaya Cave is an important archaeological site, but the excavations are over. The trail from the cable car actually crosses through the cave, a balcony with a railing offers a stunning view on the town below.
