Swedes discover secret 150-metre-long cave
« på: 30.08.2016 09:57 »
"It all started when five cave enthusiasts began exploring what looked like not much more than a hole in the ground. Around a year later they have managed to reach 150 metres into the previously unexplored cave.

"In some places in the roof there are several square metres of stalactites," cave enthusiast Alexander Bennerstål told the TT news agency on Monday after Swedish radio first reported the discovery. "We have not measured all parts of the cave, so it is probably bigger than that. It's mostly a narrow passage where we are on our stomach or side, crawling, and sometimes you just about manage to push your chest through.""

Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."

"Han heter Per Bäckström och är ursprungligen från Edsvalla, men bor numera på Gotland där han arbetar som polis. Men nu är han rikskänd som en lerig grottkrypare. Grottforskandet är en hobby han fick när han flyttade till ön.

– Jag har varit i Lummelundagrottan ett par gånger med kompisar som guider och fått upp intresset, och sen dök den här möjligheten upp.

Möjligheten är i det här fallet ett hål i marken som nu visat sig vara en grotta, som just nu mäter 150 meter."
