Orda Cave RUS­SIA

Sport Diver - - 100 Best Dice Sites - —Bog­dana Vashchenko

There is no day­light zone in the Orda Cave, and the tem­per­a­ture is only 42 de­grees Fahren­heit year-round. But the re­sult is mys­ti­cal: gi­ant white grot­toes and labyrinths of nar­row pas­sages dec­o­rate this oth­er­worldly site. The length of its flooded por­tion reaches al­most 17,000 feet, and the cave is shal­low, with a typ­i­cal av­er­age depth at about 26 feet, so you can stay and ex­plore with ex­tended bot­tom times. The in­ner space of the cave is dec­o­rated with sculp­tures of frag­ile gyp­sum. The most fa­mous of them are White Dragon and the sil­hou­ette of a woman on the wall, the Lady of Orda Cave.
