Explorers Journal Features Sistema Huautla
The cover story in the spring issue of The Explorers Journal, the quarterly publication of The Explorers Club, celebrates 50 years of Huautla caving.
Penned by Bill Steele, the article commemorates the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the caves in the Huautla de Jimenez, Oaxaca, Mexico by cavers.
Of specific significance is Sistema Huautla which is the deepest explored cave in the Americas, the 8th deepest cave in the world, and the longest of the world’s 16 deepest caves.
Exploration continues and new discoveries have occurred as recently as the 2015 Proyecto Espeleologico Sistema Huautla (PESH) expedition held earlier this year.
Copies of the Journal are available at through the Explorers Club at zinio.com for $5.95, shipping and tax included.
