There Is a Vast Unexplored Cave Down in Canada

In Canada there is a huge unexplored cave. The dream of every speleologist has emerged from the snows of British Columbia. The entrance alone is about 330 feet wide. It seems that no one has ever entered the cave - not least because you can't see the bottom.

In Canada there is a huge unexplored cave. The dream of every speleologist has emerged from the snows of British Columbia. The entrance alone is about 330 feet wide. It seems that no one has ever entered the cave – not least because you can’t see the bottom.

Apparently, the Canadians have discovered a giant underground cavern, into which no man has – as far as we know – ever gone before. The cave was sighted by chance during a census of caribou carried out by the Canadian Ministry of National Resources.

Only the entrance to the cave is 330 feet long and 200 feet wide. It is incredible, if you think that nobody knew the existence of this “hole”. Scholars speculate that it was perhaps, until recently, constantly covered with perennial snow.

Top Secret Coordinates for the Unexplored Cave

The cave is in Wells Gray Provincial Park, British Columbia. However, the authorities have not specified the exact location. In fact, they want to protect what could be a natural or historical heritage still intact, now endangered by global warming. Experts are now consulting indigenous communities to see if anyone has ever gone inside the cave. In fact, the cave is so deep and difficult to access that it would be strange if someone did it without telling the story.

Inside the Cave

According to Canadian Geographic, the only attempt to descend into the cave took place in September. However, it stopped after about 260 feet because of the massive waterfalls on the rock walls. These in fact pour 180 to 530 cubic feet of water per second into the bottom of the cave. From above and at a glance, the perceived depth of the cave is almost 600 feet (as far as the eye can see). However, scholars believe that the waterfall waters, fed by melted snow, form an underground river that resurfaces 1650 feet below and 7000 feet from the entrance.

For now the abyss has been called the Sarlacc Pit. The name is in honour of the imaginary monster – a hole that sucks up anyone in range – of the Star Wars universe. Its discoverers believe it is one of the largest caves ever in Canada. However, its exact size is still unknown. And advances in speleology are causing increasingly extensive underground systems to emerge. Just think of those recently discovered in Vietnam and Yucatan.
