Inside the Orda Cave

Orda Cave

The Orda Cave Awareness Project charted and explored the largest underwater gypsum cave system in Russia. It is a truly unique cave system that has attracted some of the world’s leading divers including fourth element dive team member Phil Short. The project compiled a series of beautiful images shot by Viktor Lyagushkin with scientific research, and written reports by some of the cave divers who have been lured to dive this cave and been forever affected by its scale and beauty. Fourth Element supported the publication of the book, which is available from the website
