The cave is situated in the karst massif of Úplaz, which is between Kolová and Javorová Valley on the northern side of the High Tatras Mts. Quite wide belt of the envelope High Tatras Mesozoic lies directly on the granite crystalline core. It represents a complicated and speleologically exceptionally interesting hydrogeological structure with significant surface and underground karst phenomenon. The cave is in the territory of the Tatra National Park.
Underground waters are concentrated and flow through the cave system of Javorinka. The entrance into the divided cave system is on the bottom of glacial trought in the central part of the Javorová Valley at elevation of 1,240 metres.
This mostly horizontal fluviokarst cave has four longer horizontal passages connected by vertical sections with waterfalls from 10 to 25 m high with a permanent allochthonous stream. The water course is fed by three ponors of the Kolový Brook at elevation about 1,384 m and its other hidden sinking transfers underground in the neighbouring Kolová Valley.
The lowest two levels are connected with fossil connection passage with a weak stream supplied from seepage waters, which form richer flowstone layers in these parts of the cave. Other parts of the cave don’t have much flowstone decoration. The discharge is directly dependent on the rainfall and in spring melting snow period it is not possible to enter the cave. Underground waters flow out of the cave through the occassional Puklinová spring, Spring in the riverbed and spring cave Mokrá diera.
The Javorinka Cave is formed in the Triassic Gutenstein limestones. Cave length is now 9,335 m with vertical span of 374 m.
Due to low yield of underground water the boat trip in Domica Cave is not available. The short tour is available. Thank you for understanding
