The caves of Uzbekistan are the most mysterious and interesting natural objects.
For millennial in the mountains of Central Asia the nature created the great number of caves, where each cave is unique in its own way. They differ from each other by their size and depth, geological formations, labyrinths that last for many kilometers, bottomless abysses and the miraculous beauty of the underground halls.
Caves are usually formed in readily soluble geological rocks (limestone, gypsum, chalk, salt). Rain and snow waters, by penetrating to the depth of the ground, dissolve the rock, and sometimes create huge underground halls and labyrinths. Water is not only the creator of caves, but also an inexhaustible dreamer-decorator, that decorates ceilings and walls with curious curtains and flowers, stalactites and stalagmites of various shapes and colors.
Caves- are, probably, the only geographical objects on earth, that were not fully observed and keep many unknown (In contrast to the mountains, the absolute heights of which have long been known).
It is unknown how many caves there are in the territory of Uzbekistan, and all of them are waiting for speleologists-explorers to reveal their secrets to them.
