1997 cave equipped with two wooden ladders.


As the name suggests, this cave has a bat colony inside. It its frequently visited, signposted and even a little bit developed. There are two wooden ladders leading to upper rooms of the cave. The cave is noted for various speleothems. The main formation looks like a wedding cake.

The ceiling of the main chamber collapsed, and so the cave is well lit, at least the main part. A torch is nevertheless a good idea.
