This cave is a natural attraction situated close to the Vanister village, Dropull Municipality, Gjirokastra region. The cave is discovered some years ago. It is not a simple cave. Inside the cave is a lake with clear turquoise waters. Some foreign explorers who entered in the cave for the first time, dived into this lake in 55 meters depth. They concluded that the cave is much deeper, up to 200 meters, but it deviates in some channels and is difficult to explore further. There is also a legend about this cave. Once a woman entered inside to get some water for her family, but she was drowned in the lake. Her body was found in Virua lake, 10 km far from that place. This mean that this source is linked with Virua lake and both are linked underground with the most beautiful natural phenomena Blue Eye in Delvina.
