Angoul Ice Cave

a cave as ancient as the earth!

Geologically the dolomitic rocks (dolostone) of the west side of Kūh-e Dārangūl (Angoul Mountain) moving along fault lines during earthquakes opened the space that created the cave. It dates back to The Triassic (the first and shortest period of the Mesozoic Era) which is almost 251.902 (+/- 0.024) million years ago. One of its spectacular features is the freezing weather inside which is caused by the always existing ice and icicles on the walls that is the reason it is named ice cave.
