The Ust-Kan Cave gained international fame in 1954. That year famous archeologist from Leningrad S.I. Rudenko discovered and explored in the cave a camp from paleolithic time.
It is a vast dry cave located on the right side of “Bely Bom” mountain about 52 meters above the base of the mountain. The cave is 17 meters long and 12 meters high. During excavations work tools and bones were found (chisels, scrapers, points, etc). In many bones wholes and notches made with stone tools were found. The date of creation of this camp has been set.
All the things discovered in the cave are kept in the Hermitage Museum as well as in the Regional Altai Museum in Barnaul.
