Finally the departure is approaching: One of the largest underground estuaries in the world awaits us. In many years of satisfactions and great discoveries, the cave is recognized among the new seven wonders of the world thanks to La Venta. We know that surprises never fail each time we cross that tropical kingdom in one of the last paradises of the Philippines, the island of Palawan.
A few weeks ago, between 5 and 18 November, the Tian Shan Geological Society and Foundation For The Preservation And Exploration Of Caves leaded an expedition to the Inylchek Glacier, one of the world’s largest mountain glaciers, located in the central area of the Tian Shan chain in the Issyk-Kul region of Kyrgyzstan.

During the Shtares 2019 expedition, the development of the homonymous cave discovered in August 2016 becomes more and more extensive. The exploration of the Grotta delle Rondini and the start of systematic scientific research have also been completed.
There are few places in the world that are still untouched, the Galapagos archipelago is certainly one of them. Made famous thanks to the work "The origin of the species" by Charles Darwin, these thirteen volcanic islands are still little known especially from the underground point of view.
