A cave close to the city of Sardasht, northwest of Iran, was explored through a filed survey in 2008. It was named the cave of “Tuzhal”. During the survey, one aven and another cave were also explored within just five kilometers away from the first cave. The second cave was named “Dolaneh”. The Dolaneh cave entrance size is about one meter in diameter. For more investigation, a group of four persons went into the cave. Their survey regarding its geomorphological features resulted in more information concerning the holes and Karstic landforms close to the Dolaneh cave entrance. The evidences show that there is a connection between Tuzhal and Dolaneh caves and other features in surrounding areas such as avens and karstic springs. Further investigation is needed through field work to identify all parts of the caves and karstic landforms in the area.
