Ozernaya Cave in Adygeya

This little-known cave is located on the ridge Azish-Tau in the north-eastern part of the plateau Lago-Naki in the Republic of Adygeya, near the hotel named after this ridge and the ski lift.

The cave is relatively small, but has an unusually large concentration of speleothems commonly known as cave formations.

After heavy rains, one of the halls of the cave becomes a small lake – hence the name of the cave meaning “lake cave”. On the ceiling you can sometimes see a colony of bats. Photos by: Vladimir Mulder.
