A THOUSAND METERS UNDER THE JUNGLE
During the 1995 French caving expedition in Papua New Guinea, the cavers led by Jean-Paul Sounier continue the exploration of the Muruk chasm, ten years after its discovery. By crossing the terminal siphon, Michel Philips delivers the key of the abyss and the teams which will follow one another in the giant cave will exceed for the first time in the southern hemisphere, the mythical 1 000 m depth. A beautiful authentic adventure in one of the last primary forests on Earth. French and English versions.
