Krubera Cave is the deepest cave in the world, it is located in the Western Caucasus region of Georgia. The area contains several hundred caves that started to develop around 5 million years ago when the mountains began to rise. Five of the caves in this region are deeper than 1,000 meters, Krubera Cave is 2,197 meters, the only cave known to be over 2,000 meters deep.
The entrance to the cave is easy to miss, it’s not the huge opening you would expect from the world’s biggest cave system.
