After 4 years of work, the book, Gouffre Berger

Written in great detail by experienced caver Mark Wright, this high quality, large format, hard-backed coffee table book features 256 pages of stunning photographs of this fantastic cave system by award winning photographer Robbie Shone and a team of dedicated assistants. As well as providing a history of the cave’s original exploration it also contains valuable information for those thinking of organizing their own summer expedition.
