Product Description

The Gouffre Berger is recognised as one of the world’s great caves. In 1956, under the leadership of the French cave explorer Fernand Petzl, a large international expedition descended past the magical -1,000-metre-mark to reach its terminal sump at a depth of 1,122 metres.

Mark Wright and Robbie Shone, with a team of dedicated assistants, undertook seven photographic expeditions to the Berger between 2010 and 2013 and have produced an informative and impressive showcase of its spectacular underground scenery. It should provide past visitors with a real sense of nostalgia and inspire future visitors to this fine cave system.

Written in the English and French languages, this book is testament to the ‘Team Spirit’ (L’esprit d’equipe) of the international caving community. All profits from the sale of the book will support the work of the UK’s ‘Ghar Parau Foundation’ and the French ‘Nicola Association’ helping cavers into the future.
