Deepest Cave Photo 2

Crash Pad
Photograph by Bernard Tourte

A camp established at 1,410 meters (4,600 feet) below the surface was one of four set up as places to cook, sleep, and plan strategy. Though some team members made trips to the surface every few days, some stayed underground for 14 straight days. In all, 56 cavers from seven nations took part in the Krubera Cave exploration, organized by Alexander Klimchouk, a noted speleologist and a senior scientist at Ukraine's National Academy of Science.
