Keloğlan Cave

Keloğlan Cave

Discovered in 1970, Keloğlan Cave is a cave in Dodurgalar Town in Acıpayam. It was brought to tourism by Denizli Governorship and Dodurgalar Municipality Mineral Research and Exploration and opened to visitors in 2003.

Keloğlan Cave, which has been forming for about 10 million years, has a very beautiful atmosphere with its stalactites and stalagmites in 2 large galleries. It is possible to see many dripstones in the cave, which is about 145 meters long. There are still bat communities inside. Therefore, in the cave, which is already small, the flight of a bat means passing close to you. But there is nothing to worry about.
