About

The exploration, study, and documentation of Sistema Huautla, the deepest cave in the Western Hemisphere, and said by the expert, highly experienced and accomplished speleologists who have been in it to be "the worlds' greatest cave", has been happening most years since their discovery in 1966. in 2013 PESH (Proyecto Espeleologico Sistema Huautla) was launched with goals to conduct annual month-long expeditions for ten years, fully exploring, mapping, and documenting this immense cavern.

Funds raised will be used to purchase a project cargo van with which to transport equipment and supplies from the USA to southern Mexico, and the purchase of state-of-the-art gear.

Here is a link to a video made after the 2015 expedition:

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk involves exploring one of the deepest caves in the world being inherently dangerous. Our participants are the best cavers in the world. We have a very good safety record. Accidents can happen, and some have through the years, but we are as prepared as well as possible in case one happens.
