3.6 5
Now Close

It is located in Mersin Province, Silifke District, Narlıkuyu Bay, Hasanaliler Neighbourhood. It is 600 m southwest of Cennet Pothole. There are stalactites and stalagmites formed over thousands of years in this 200 m long cave and it is a natural cave formation. It is believed that the air is good for asthmatics. It got this name because cloth was tied to the trees around it and a wish was made. The formation of the cave, which is descended with a spiral iron ladder, dates back to the 3rd geological period. The interconnected 200-meter-long galleries are decorated with interestingly shaped giant stalactites and stalagmites formed by the accumulation of silica minerals. Humidity reaches 85 percent in summer and 95 percent in winter.
