DSCF2927For the majority of people Russia is distant and strange country, terra incognita. And Orda cave is equally weird for Russians. This gypsum cave is unique – low water temperature (+5C), huge volumes of underwater passages and marvelous visibility. It is the biggest gypsum cave in the world.

Only couple hundreds of people saw this exceptional wonder of nature. And it was photographed by nothing more than dozen. And nobody pictured this wizardly palace of gypsum and water as we did.
