Montenegro barlangkutatás

Research area

From 2003, members of the Hungarian Speleological Society organize regular summer expeditions to Montenegro, to the
environs of Njeguš polje just above the famous Kotor Bay. This karst region, elevated high (850-1600 m) above the sea level
and belonging partly to the Lovćen National Park, has a significant potential for the discovery of new caves and cave sections.
By field surveys and by repeated inspection of the caves explored earlier, our cavers have multiplied the length of the known
passages here. Within the investigated area covering now some 45 km 2 , we succeeded to document almost two hundred
caves (larger than 10 m) with a total length of 33.8 km, and more than a two third of these are Hungarian discoveries!
The largest one is the Dvorupa-Ledena System with a length of 7,400 m (of which 6,700 m is Hungarian exploration). This is
currently the second longest and by its depth of -715 m, the third deepest cave in Montenegro.

1-1 further caves exceed the length of 5 km and the depth of -500 m here. Namely, Njegoš Cave (6,200 m; -383 m) that is now
the third longest one due to the Hungarian discoveries of 5 km since 2004; and Duboki do (2,500 m; -506 m) where our divers
increased the depth with some -200 m behind the first sump. The list of the longest and deepest caves of Montenegro
includes two more Hungarian explorations among its first twenty items: these are Bogos Cave (2,000 m; -279 m) discovered in
2010, and Zečja rupa (ca. 1,850 m; ca. -400 m) investigated since 2006.

Besides the information collected by the altogether ca. 500 members of the expeditions, our homepage offers with its photo
gallery an insight into this spectacular underground world, too.
