This cave is different to the heaven and hell caves that other reviewers have posted here. This cave translates to Asthma cave - as many asthma sufferers claim to have been cured here. The heaven and hell caves (Cennet Cehenem) are only 500 metres away which is why people are maybe confusing them with this one.
So this Astim cave has many beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. There is a metal spiral staircase that descends into the cave. Sometimes the ground is a bit slippery, but there are stairs and walkways to help with walking throughout. It is quite humid and warm in the cave, so no need to bring warm clothes even if it is cool outside. The cave is around 200 metres long.
There is a road just near Kizkalesi that goes up to the caves, this road is filled with restaurants. The heaven and hell caves are the first ones you reach, then 500 metres later you will find this Astim Cave. Walk through the restaurant/gift shop area to find the ticket office.
If you are interested in caves, this cave is much better than the heaven and hell caves. As you can only see the pit of the hell cave and the heaven cave is just one very large opening with not many formations to see.
