Deepest Cave Photo 1

Under the Rainbow
Photograph by Stephen L. Alvarez

Lured by dreams of setting a record for the deepest cave exploration ever, members of an international team of cavers pitched their tents in Abkhazia, a separatist region of the republic of Georgia. There the Ukrainian Speleological Association headed an expedition into Krubera Cave in the Arabika Massif, hoping to surpass the next great milestone in caving: the 2,000-meter (7,000-foot) depth mark.
