Reed Flute Cave – description, photos, name.

Cave of the reed flute got its name thanks to the thickets of reeds, enveloping the slopes of the mountain and approaches to the cave. Well, “flute”, apparently, because that is what is most often made of reeds. It seems unbelievable that not a single person had a hand in the creation of this miracle. Many years ago, as a result of natural disasters, the waters of the ocean that used to fill these areas receded, revealing to humans the incredible crevices and caves hidden in its abysses. Locals tell legends about the appearance of the Reed Flute Cave. One of them says that once upon a time a simple farmer, while working in a cane field, fell through the earth, finding himself in an underground cave.
