The Emyne-Bayr-Koba Cave (or Tryokhglazka Cave that translates as Three-eye) is a cave with three pits or "eyeholes" fitted with an entrance and stairs leading down to a huge karst hall.
A steep staircase goes down to the cave 38 metres (124.67 feet) deep.
The interesting fact about the cave is that the inside temperature does not exceed 10 C (50 F) as in a refrigerator all the year round. And a big cone-shaped bank of ice-covered snow towers at the very bottom.
People have known about the cave for a long time. The ancient hunters kept their bags here getting it down with a rope through the central "eye" to the ice-cold underground storage place. When necessary they lifted up the needed amount of food and then brought down again. Count Vorontsov used the cave ice to cool wine, beverages and food. The ice had been sawn in pieces, piled into huge buckets, wrapped to keep cold and delivered by oxen along the downhill twisty roads.
