Fairy tale cave - information for the tourist.
The cave is located at an altitude of 1044 meters above sea level in the foothills of the Karatau mountains. Previously, the cave was closed and only when mining began in this area in the 50s, the entrance to it was opened. Since the cave is located within a busy highway connecting the city, the cave was visited by a lot of people and because of this the cave was subjected to massive devastation. The cave consists of stalactites, which are located both on the floor and on the ceiling of the cave, and these formations were barbarously plundered by people, apparently as souvenirs. People tore off all the walls, floor and ceiling of the cave, and the cave ceased to be a Fairy Tale.
