Karaca Cave

Reviewed By powerking80 - Baghdad, Iraq

This cave is approximately 100km from Trabzon and it takes about two hours to reach , the road is very beautiful and across the Mountains, the cave is small and not like what we told , camera and photos are forbidden.
Tickets cost 5TL per adult, they are working on renewing the cave entrance , road and car parking.
From my opinion it doesn't worth the visit at all since it is small and nothing new nor interesting inside .
Cal cave (nearby) is better to visit .

Karaca Cave

Reviewed By SwampeastMike - Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Karaca Cave is quite unusual in my experience as it is at the top of a quite dry mountain. Of course you also find Springs at the top of other Mountains in the Kaçkars so perhaps caves in such places are not so unusual.
Karaca Cave was very newly discovered and is in pristine condition. Unlike other caves I've visited in Turkey there has been extremely little or no "souvenir" taking so even the most delicate formations are fully intact.
While the area open to exploration it is particularly large it is extraordinarily rich in every type of cave formation. While I can't be certain of this it appeared to me that two distinctly different chemical processes are at work--the first of which is the common one that takes extremely long periods of time and a second which produces formations relatively quickly--perhaps even at a pace akin to human lifetimes.
Photography is not allowed inside the cave.
Keep your eyes peeled for a strange little formation that looks exactly like the minaret of a mosque to include the balcony! I am utterly clueless as to how it formed.
The last 200 meters or so of the road to the cave is currently under reconstruction so expect a modest hike for the reasonably foreseeable future. It may be possible to get reasonably close to the cave using public transportation but if so I would not expect it to be very infrequent.

There are historical ottoman coins made in Gumushane, old guns, little dollies and furnitures. Small and cozy, warm and lovely, twin houses of two different family, small city museum?
