40 thousand people visited Altinbesik Cave in the first five months of this year, after it reopened to guests last year after two years in Antalya. Local and international tourists rushed to the cave, which can be reached by boat from the subterranean lake’s deep blue turquoise waters.

Local and international visitors were stunned by this Antalya paradise corner, which hosted an average of 300 people per day and offered sightseeing boats to explore the cave’s magnificence.
According to Ylmaz Zdoan, a member of the Brad Municipality personnel and the operating manager of Altinbesik Cave, the cave is the world’s third largest underground lake cave and the largest in Turkey. zdoan stated that the Brad Municipality is putting forth every effort to provide the best possible service to cave visitors.

This year we continue to multiply on it. The number of visitors we have received since the beginning of this year has exceeded 40 thousand. We get quite a lot of visitors, especially on weekends. Our visitors come from all over the world. We even met with our visitors from Colombia and Brazil. We have increased the number of boats to better serve our visitors.”
