The devils throat and Haramiiska

kaniona na vodopaditeDevil's Throat Cave

The devil's throat cave attracts tourists with their mysterious beauty, the roaring element of the underground waterfall (the highest in the Balkans). Formed by the 42-meter precipitous waters of the River Trigrad, as well as the many legends that spark the imagination.

The name of the cave comes from the shape of its entrance, which resembles a devil's head.

The cave is precipice and unbranched. The waters of Trigrad’s river flow into the "throat" from a height of 42 meters. Because of the deafening thunder that is being created, the Waterfall Hall is called the Punching Hall.

Approximately 400 meters from the entrance, the river waters are lost in a siphon. The length of the siphon is more than 150 meters, and after that, the 60-meter gallery leaves the underground river and leaves the cave again and returns to the surface through another cave.

An interesting fact is that nothing dropped into the waters of the Devil's Throat comes out of the cave exit. Many experiments have been made with logs and various other objects that sink without a trace in the underground river and even more stir the curiosity and the imagination.

There is only one attempt to investigate the terrible siphon that the river forms, but the expedition (in 1970) ends tragically.
After the waterfall, the waters of the creepy river pass through a 60-meter gallery and go out to the surface through another cave, called "The Dirknika of the Devil". Here cavers organize boat expeditions against the flow of the underground river. Pre-reservation is requested. And a lot of courage?

Very interesting are the three reliefs carved in the rocks of the cave. The first of these is a devil's head, located near the visitors' entrance, shortly before descending into the Buzzing Hall. The second one is the figure of a full-length man in an antique style cut into the stone in the Buzzing Hall. On the way to the exit you can see a small spring with a carved miniature altar with a figure of Bogodoritsa.
