Description

The cave entrance of Kaklik Mağarası (Kaklik Cave) is a huge doline, between 11 and 13m in diameter and 10m deep. This collapse of the roof of a part of the cave allowes to enter the cave. Inside are numerous rimstone pools, glimmering white and often compared to nearby Pamukkale.

Kaklik Cave was formed about 2.5 Million years ago during the Pliocene Period by sulphurous thermal waters. This cave development based on or at least heavily influenced by sulfur resulted in extraordinary speleothems.
