The Karaftu caves are located in the Kurdistan province of western Iran, about one hour by car from Takab (between Takab and Saqqez). It's a complex of caves in the sandstone cliff of a mountain, of which some parts are accessible to visitors. To get to the caves, visitors drive along a road and leave the car in a parking. From the parking there is a path which leads to a staircase to the caves. The caves are on different levels and are connected by corridors.
