Fire Cave Found in Mountains of Kabardino-Balkaria

In the Fire Cave, there are sulfur and saltpeter, which are components for the production of gunpowder.

      Participants of the inter-regional speleological expedition to study the caves of the natural massif of Sary-Tal together with local researchers have found the so-called Fire Cave lost in the mountains of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic of the RF. Tengiz Mokayev, a local historian and member of the Russian Geographical Society (RGS), told to Tass on Saturday.

      The Fire Cave was named so because sulfur and saltpeter - components for making gunpowders - were once discovered there.

      A few-hundred-meter long cave has a large entrance, three halls and many side branches.

      Members of the expedition found inscriptions made on stones by the cave visitors in the 20th century. One of the inscriptions dates back to 1909.
