The fact, that in Yagita outskirts near the foot of one of the mountains is an extraordinary cave, a height of approximately 2 m and 4 m wide. This cave is guarded its entrance: with its interior all the time blowing strong and very cold wind. Even in summer the temperature of cold breath of the cave is nearly 20 degrees below zero at that time, as just a few steps from her thermometer shows over 40 degrees heat. The water in the bucket quickly turns into a solid block of ice.

Why in the cave is so cold? So far, no one can answer this question. The cave is completely dry, no snow in it!!! Perhaps the reason for this behavior of the cave is the same that caused the formation of island permafrost on Mount Razvalka North Caucasus.
