Located in Sillifke‘s Narlikuyu Quarter, Astım Cave is located 300 m south-west of the Cennet Çöküğü. Located in the travel routes along with the Heaven-Hell Pits, the Asthma Cave is one of the places that best reflects the geographical conditions of the region.

The cave comes with an iron staircase and consists of interconnected galleries measuring 200 m in length. Giant stalactites and stalagmites can be seen in the gallery. This wonderful structure, formed by the accumulation of silica minerals in the caverns extending to the formation of the 3rd geological period, attracts a lot of domestic and foreign visitors.

Asthma Cave is said to be good for asthmatic patients, whose humidity is 85% in summer and 95% in winter. The average temperature of the cave is 15 degrees Celsius throughout the year.

The trees and shrubs around the cave are connected to shoddy and rag fragments to appeal to the incoming sight. Due to this belief, the locals also say that the cave of asthma is called Dilek Cave.
