How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Devetaki plateau is made from limestone, some sandstone and is home of a big number unique karst phenomenons – caves, surface precipices, rock bridges, springs, gorges, canyons, waterfalls and water cascades. “The Ladder” cave is located at Devetaki plateau near village of Karpachevo, which is close to well-known waterfalls of Krushuna. The place is also near to more famous “Devetashka” cave.
“The Ladder” cave is well hidden into the fields near the village and is not popular or cultivated place - we spent few hours searching for it, but for sure it worth all the efforts.
Approaching the location from the end of the village you have to leave your vehicle (the dirt road is suitable only for 4x4) and following the waypoints provided will find the place easily. When you reach the place you will see the hole in the ground and a small metal ladder leading somewhere downwards into the dark and cold cave.
Once you get down you will be amazed of cave’s huge entrance hall which is at all your directions around. It is so huge, that we were unable to take a pictures of it…
The cave itself is not accessible unless you are experienced and equipped speleologist, but even its entrance is gorgeous place. Please note, that there are no clues of recent maintenance activities and the ladder is (beautifully) overgrown, slippery and somewhat rust-eaten.
Be even more careful walking around and into the cave in case of recent rain or snow.
Go there and enjoy this beautiful place.
Good luck and keep on cachin’
