|I want to post a few photos from my last trip to the Kungur Ice Cave.|
Kungur Ice Cave is known since 1703 when Peter the Great issued the decree sending a well-known geographer S.U. Remezov from Tobolsk in Kungur. He worked out the Uyezd plan and the first sketch of the Cave.
The Cave as an excursion site is used since 1914 and equipped with with 3 tour routes with different length:
The examination of a large excursion ring (classic route) continues 1h. 20 min. During this time 1. First tour is 1.5 km and around 1 hour and 20 min
Second is 1.8 km and 1 hour 40 min
Third one is the biggest, 2 km and around 1.5 hour. On this one there is a laser show and the route is “more difficult”.
Some hundred thousand people come to have a look at this unique creation of nature every year. The total number of tourists has already exceeded 5 million.
In the eastern part of “IceThe Mountain“ there are two sites of ancient settlement of VII-IX centuries, relating to Lomovatov culture. Yermakov’s site of ancient settlement known since the XIX century.
Inside the cave there is narrow path which is called “the women road” because long time ago a foreign princes was falling down on this road and after she got back she get married, and now they say if a lady will falls down on this road she will get married soon.
