The Voronya Cave Is The Closest Point To The Center Of The Earth.

Krubera Cave, also known as Voronya Cave, is located at an elevation of 2,256 meters (7,402 feet) above sea level. It is situated in the Ortobalagan Valley in the sub-Caucasian stretch of the Arabika’s central sector relative to the seashore.

Krubera Cave is considered the deepest known cave on Earth, with a depth of approximately 2,199 meters (7,215 feet). It is a limestone labyrinth in the Black Sea region. The cave holds the record for being the only known cave deeper than 2,000 meters.

The cave has a length of approximately 16.058 kilometers (9.978 miles). It has been the subject of numerous cave exploration expeditions, during which challenges, dangers, and discoveries have been encountered.

One of Jules Verne’s most cherished dreams, as depicted in his 1864 novel “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” was to venture into the interior of the Earth. Although Veryovkina Cave will not take us to these depths, it allows us to reach the closest point known to the center of the planet.

Veryovkina Cave, with a depth of approximately 2212 meters, holds the distinction of being the deepest cave in the world.

It is situated on the pass between the Krepost and Zont mountains in the region of Abkhazia, a self-declared independent state that is officially considered part of Georgia. In 1968, the cave was discovered by a group of speleologists from the city of Krasnoyarsk, who managed to reach a depth of 115 meters.

In 1986, a new group from Moscow, led by Oleg Parfenov, achieved the remarkable depth of 440 meters. Since 2015, a series of new explorations by the Perovo-Speleo group have revealed that the cave was deeper, repeatedly reaching new milestones until achieving the record depth of 2212 meters in March 2018, and documenting an underground tunnel system of over 6000 meters.
