Balaoiyk Cave

About Balaoiyk Cave

The Balaoiyk Cave aka Balayuk was discovered relatively recently and was immediately called the “miracle of Ustyurt“. It is located in the south-eastern part of the Ustyurt Plateau, near the border with the Republic of Uzbekistan, 52 km southeast of the Karynzharyk Depression and 350 km from Aktau. The cave is surrounded by a flat valley but it is very hard to spot the entrance which is located in a karst hollow 50m long and 7m deep. The 120-metre-deep cave was created by underground springs, and at the bottom there is an underground lake, the depth of which has never been measured.

The Ustyurt Plateau is full of similar karst caves.
