Höhlentauchen in Frankreich

Im Laufe der Jahrtausende entstanden, ziehen wassergefüllte Höhlen heutzutage eine wachsende Anzahl von Tauchern an, die sich dem Reiz der Unterwelt nicht entziehen können. Höhlentauchen stellt sicherlich eine der anspruchsvollsten Arten des Tauchsports dar, aber gut ausgebildeten und ausgerüsteten, umsichtigen Tauchern bieten diese ansonsten nahezu leblosen, lichtlosen Orte Ansichten von atemberaubender Schönheit und mystische Erlebnisse und Abenteuer, die schwer in Worte zu fassen sind...

Im Sommer 2013 konnte ich ein Projekt von begeisterten Höhlentauchern begleiten, die sich nach einer zwei Kilometer langen Tauchfahrt noch weitere tausend Meter über scharfkantiges Gestein ihren Weg durch gewaltige Tunnel und tiefe Spalten gesucht haben, um den weiteren Verlauf dieses Höhlensystems zu erkunden und zu vermessen. Das Team verbrachte insgesamt 28 Stunden in der Dunkelheit.

Ein herzliches Dankeschön an alle Lampenständer, Stillsteher, Schwebeteilchen und Troglophilen (Lebewesen, die Höhlen als komplementären Lebensraum bevorzugen oder darauf angewiesen sind) für ihre unermüdliche Geduld und Mühe beim Unterwasser-Ballett...

Under France...

For thousands of years, the flowing waters under the earth have created a spectacular system of tunnels and chambers known throughout the world to divers with an appetite for dark, magical places. Cave diving presents certain challenges to scuba divers, because surfacing is not an option and the closest exit is always far away. However, for those trained and well-equipped divers, these caves provide a rewarding opportunity to discover the world below.

In 2013, I joined a group of enthusiastic cave divers and documented their under-earth explorations into massive tunnels and chambers which can oly be reached through Sump One, 2.000 meters long and completely submerged. The team set up a camp as starting point and mapped almost one kilometer of dry passages before they were stopped by another waterfilled lake, leading further into the earth...

A big thank you to my floating human lamp posts and troglophiles (life forms that seek out caves in which to call home) for their tireless enthusiasm in the underwater ballet...
