Magili Caverns is not a show cave, but it is publicized by the Armenian tourist board. As this cave is rather wild, you should definitely use your brain before visiting it. Be sure to have enough light and appropriate clothing. Although it is a dry, horizontal cave, it is not an easy cave. The entrance slope is steep and only a hand line helps the visitor a bit. Physical fitness and surefootedness are required.
