Description:

The Apache Death Cave in Two Guns, Arizona is a historically significant site linked to a tragic event in 1878, where Navajo warriors suffocated approximately 42 Apaches hiding in a cave after a raid. Located in the ghost town of Two Guns, which once thrived as a tourist stop on Route 66, the cave is a somber reminder of the violent conflicts between Native American tribes during the westward expansion. Today, it attracts visitors and paranormal enthusiasts, who are urged to approach with respect due to its cultural and historical importance.
