The cave is located on the Uluchur plateau, its height is 2666 meters above sea level. The plateau is limited by the canyon of the Uluchur stream and the Uluchursky ridge with a pronounced saddle of the pass, beyond which there is the Susingen plateau.
In the west, the Uluchur plateau is limited by a sharp decrease in the valley of the Karzhantau ridge, in the north - by a sharp decrease in the valley of the Burguluk river. The plateau has two closed karst basins, in one of which is the deepest cave of Kazakhstan - Uluchurskaya.
