The entrance to the cave is a 4,000-meter-long open-air corridor with no roof caverns and a few atrium entrances. After the atrium there is a 950 meter wide corridor with 2 meters high elevation and dry pits, which continues with a 50 meter extension. The corridor, after passing through a hill, reaches the large chamber, covered with abstracts and abbreviations and columns. The inlet of the atrium is closed to prevent potential damage.
