KefalovrisoSights: Melissotripa Cave

Melissotripa Cave

The cave of Melissotripa is located at Kefalovryso Elassonas in the district of Larissa. Its entrance is a 14.6m escarpment. Then it is horizontal and a little more than 2km long. The cave has been created by water, which is obvious through the twisting shapes on its walls. The existence of hydrosulphite (H2S) in the small lakes inside the cave adds further evidence. Unfortunately, the cave is currently at the collapsing stage of its existence and landslides are apparent in many spots. It is divided in 7 areas, with those of aragonites, crystalloid shapes and labyrinth standing out.
