History of the Cave


Dim Cave is at a distance of 145 Km. to the touristic city of Antalya and 11 Km. to the touristic center Alanya, which is mostly attracted by the European tourists, on Mediterranean coast of TÜRKİYE. The Cave is at a high of 232 metres from the sea level and is at the western slope of 1691 metres high Cebel Reis mountain. The Dim Cave is reachable both from Kestel and Tosmur Towns and also from Dim Stream Valley by asphalted roads.

Dim Cave was known by the surrounding villagers previously. Some parts of the Cave were used as shelter by hunters and sheperds. This cave has first been investigated and measured by professional speleologists in 1986. After several years, it was brought to the show cave conditions by MAGTUR S.A. and was leased to Magtur joint stock Co. by the Government in 1996 and was open for visits in 1998. Dim Cave , in this case, is the first cave business enterprise operated by private sector in Turkey.
