Damlataş Cave

Damlataş Cave is the first cave opened to tourism in Turkey and is in Alanya which is at 100 km distance to Belek. The cave with a total length of 30 m was found in 1948 by a dynamite blasting during a construction of ferry port. It is thought that stalactites and stalagmites in the cave have occurred between 15,000 - 20,000 BC. Dry and horizontal Damlataş Cave covers an area of 200 m. This 15-m-high cave presents a unique feast for the eyes with a great number of stalactites and stalagmites. The cave is very beneficial for people with asthma because of the rate of carbon dioxide, high humidity, low temperature and radioactive air. Therefore, asthmatic patients are frequent visitors of the cave.
