The entry height is 2500m from sea level and is 3m width & 8m height.Yakh Morad contains a lot of icicles and lime lampshades which makes it a unique cave in IRAN. This cave has three main halls, one ice – pool & one ice water full. Knowing SRT and using rope is not necessary, but there are couple of shafts if someone wants more adventure.

Best season for visit is March & April which stalactites are in beautiful shape. Coldness of cave is as much as those stalagmites of ice can be observed even in khordad month.
