Geologically, the caves provide a tunnel or escape route for the underground river.
In this cave and galleries, the action of water in the limestone has created cathedral-like vaults full of various sizes, colors and shapes of stalactites and stalagmites, majestic curtains and fantastic rock formations.
The total length of the cave is MORE THAN 9000 m, and there is one among the BIGGEST STALACTITES IN THE WORLD hanging 8,20 m.
The grotto accommodates a HUGE HALL with a distance of 108 m from the ceiling till the water level.
