Dim Cavern is located within the bounderies of Alanya - Kestel township, towards the south slope of Dim valley, at an altitude of 232 m.
The Cavern is 134 km from Antalya Airport and its distance from Alanya city centre is 11 km. You may gain access to the cavern, by taking the seaside road passing through Kestel township.

Dim Cavern was known for a long time and some parts were used as a sheep fold. During 1986 the cavern was studied geologically and geomorphologically. The Cavern was introduced to the visitors after the conclusion of scientific inspections by MAGTUR Co. in 1998.
This cavern had been named as "Dim Cavern" due to the name of the population living nearby.

The 360 m long path is prepared and illuminated, so as to provide a pleasant excursion offering a tremendous scenary of stalagmites and stalactites to the visitors.

You can observe the continious formation and the calcerous flowers in Pamukkale Hall at the west side of Dim Cavern; as well as the lake located at the southern part.

The environment will offer you all seasons at the same time of year with the snowy peaks of the Taurus Mountains, the clean and warm sea, and the bright sun of the Mediterranean region.
