This cave has 751 meter depth and with D5 degree of difficulty recognized as one of hardest caves to caving. The British caving team which discovered the cave named their group Ghar Parau foundation.

Stretched at about 3050 meters height in Parau Mountain, it was the greatest vertical cave in the world at the time of its discovery, more than 40 years ago (1971).

“That was why it is called Everest of all the caves in the world. This cave is registered as the second natural and national monument in Kermanshah in [the Iranian calendar year] 1388 (March 2009-March 2010) by Environmental Protection Agency in Iran.”

Today, many deep caves are discovered throughout the world which are even deeper than Parau Cave and have sent this cave down to rank 221 in the list of deepest world caves, the report said.

It embraces a variety of awe-inspiring historical sites including Bisotun and Taq-e Bostan, both on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
