Speleo expedition to the “Kumysh” karst plateau. Second half of June, 2021

The southwestern slopes of the Fergana Range have always been and remain mysterious for speleologists. These limestone slopes of the ridge, overgrown with forest and bushes, hide caves. There are many springs on the slopes. In the Tien-Shan, these places are the most humid. The largest amount of atmospheric precipitation falls here – about 900-1000 mm per year. Locals have long been telling about the caves they saw in different gorges. Our goal in 2021 is to explore some of the karst areas accessible by car and horses. One of Continue Reading

Speleological expedition to Baysun-Tau (Uzbekistan), August, 2021

Speleological expedition to Baysun-Tau  The expedition is planned for July-August Baysyn-Tau expedition – 2021 The deepest caves of Asia are concentrated here on Baysun-Tau mountain range. One of the grand Baysun-Tau ranges, Khoja-Gur-Gur-Ata ridge, rises above the surrounding landscape and  scarce alpine villages more than 3600 m. It stretches for  more than 100 km from the southwest to the northeast. Tectonic processes lifted  limestone stratum above 3500 m height above sea level, forming an extensive inclined plateau in the northwest, which ends in the southeast with a almost 500 m Continue Reading
