Devil’s Throat Cave

The Devil’s Throat Cave (Dyavolskoto garlo) captures the attention not only with its poetic name, but also with what is claimed to be the highest underground waterfall in the Balkans! The cave is situated in the majestic Trigrad Gorge of the Rhodopes Mountains. The main gallery is named ‘The Roaring Hall’ after the constant river roaring noise.

According to a popular legend based on Greek mythology, the Devil’s Throat Cave was the route which the famous bard Orpheus took as he descended into the Underworld in search of Eurydice, his wife and a daughter of Apollo.
