"two Scots have discovered what is believed to be the country’s longest cave after coming across the nettle-choked entrance by chance as they explored the area.

Geologist Iain Greig of Aberdeen and Neal Menzies from Stonehaven were exploring an area about two miles south of Durness in Sutherland last June.

Around 500 yards from the road in the North West Highlands Geopark, a geological area which is home to a number of limestone caves, they stumbled across an innocuous looking entrance which was blocked by vegetation.

The experienced cavers believe that it could directly to the world-renowned Smoo Cave near the village which is a distance of around four miles away.

When the men entered what has now been called the Cave of the Black Stones, they found the way blocked by silt but it was heading northwards towards Smoo Cave, following the course of River Dionard."

"A huge, gaping cave has been discovered hidden in the remote Canadian wilderness, and despite the overwhelming scale of this stunning natural void, researchers suggest it may never have been seen by human eyes before.

Nicknamed the 'Sarlacc Pit' after the monstrous pit-dwelling beast in Star Wars, the giant cave – concealed amidst the rugged terrain of British Columbia's Wells Gray Provincial Park – is so vast its effectively unbelievable, explorers say.

"My immediate reaction was that there can't be a cave there, it's impossible," geoscientist Catherine Hickson, who conducted an expedition to the site in September, told Global News.

"It is huge. It is enormous. When you first see it, you just gasp because it's just this huge hole in the ground.""

"A vast unexplored cave which was discovered by accident in Canada may have never been seen by humans before.

Officials from Canada’s ministry of national resources stumbled across the huge cavern while conducting a caribou count by helicopter in April.

After conducting an investigation and an initial exploration of the opening, the ministry said it believes the cave was not known even to First Nations peoples who have lived in the area for millennia.

The cave sits in pristine Alpine landscape inside a local national park in British Columbia, in Western Canada.

Experts have suggested that the cave might have been covered with snow all year round, until as recently as the 1990s, and thus lain undiscovered for thousands of years."

Et stykke inn i videoen (0.44). Står det at grottetaket er verdens tynneste. De oppgir det som 4 m tykt.
Kan det stemme at det er verdens tynneste grottetak ?

Jeg skal sette sammen noen uHeyphones fremover. Ian Cooper har oppdatert den orginale Heyphone til overflatemonterte kompmonenter og komponenter det går an å skaffe.

"Leder i Norsk Grotteforbund, Marek Vokac, mener det er fint at turistselskapet Visit Plura vil satse på grotteturisme, men mener at det er mange ting som må tenktes på før man sender folk inn i grotter.

Det finnes over 600 marmorgrotter med en lengde på over 100 meter i Norge. Hvis man teller alle grotter som er kortere, kan tallet være flere tusen, og hvert år oppdages fortsatt nye. De aller fleste grottene i Norge ligger i Nordland. I Rana alene kan det være mellom 200, og 250 grotter. Der er disse Visit Plura nå ønsker å markedsføre.

– Det finnes grotter som har fantastiske formasjoner, og disse er veldig sjeldne. Masseturismen har ingenting der inne å gjøre, det ville være fryktelig synd, forteller Vokac.

Han forteller videre at sikkerheten alltid vil være en utfordring i en grotte. Ettersom mange grotter har stått uberørt i over 100.000 år, vet man ikke hva den tåler.

– Grotter har også stor vitenskapelig verdi, når det blir trafikk i grottene, blir dette ødelagt, og verdien forsvinner, legger Vokac til.

Samtidig sier han at grotter som er besøkt i mange år, og hvor forskningsverdien er hentet ut, ikke tar skade av flere turister."

Flere av guttene skal delta i en buddhistisk seremoni:

"Praphun Khomjoi, Chiang Rai's Buddhist office chief, said that the Wild Boars will have their heads shaved on Tuesday and attend a robe ceremony the next day.
They will then stay in different monasteries until leaving and again returning home on Aug 4.

One of the children, Adul Sam-on, will not join them as he is Christian, the governor said."
