The Haramiyska Cave is located in the Trigrad Gorge in the Rhodope Mountains, close to the famous Devil’s Throat Cave. It is a preferable site for extreme tourism enthusiasts, as it offers thrilling experiences for those, challenging their worst fears from heights, dark and claustrophobic places. Alpine and speleological equipment for the visitors are a must.

The cave has two entrances – or more accurately, an entrance and an exit – since the initial drop-off leads to two connected caves. The entrance is difficult to reach. One gets there after a difficult vertical 20 meter climbing, requiring equipment. Then follows a steep section, secured with metal cables.

The cave once hosted hominins, from the early ages of the human development. Remains of the cave’s first inhabitants have been discovered, and models of their artifacts that are scattered in the natural light at the entrance are among the cave’s attractions. There are a few small chambers in the cave. The entry into one of them is extremely narrow, only a crawl-space. The interior has not been fitted with lights, so visitors must bring their own light source and climbing gear.

The most exciting part of the visit is the 43-meter drop-off to a huge gallery, the bottom of which is closed off by boulders. This gallery is lit by natural light, coming from the cave’s other opening, the exit point.
