About Namakdan Salt Cave

The Saltwater flows that move on the bed of Namakdan Salt Cave creates an especially fascinating scenery for the visitors. The saltwater flows reflect the images around it and add up to the beauty of the cave. There is a small natural white spring that is fed by the saltwater flows. This spring flows throughout the year. The moisture of the island together with the penetration of water into the cave causes the saturated saltwater to leak and produce beautiful icicles on the ceiling.
