Group of divers discovers the world’s longest underwater cave system.
A group of divers from the Gran Acuifero Maya project had identified a 347-km-long flooded cave in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula as the longest underwater cave system.
The group, after months of exploring a maze of underwater channels, found that the cave system known as Sac Actun, once measured at 263 km, connected with the 83km Dos Ojos system making it the biggest flooded cave on the planet.
The discovery could also help shed new light on the ancient Maya civilization and help to understand the development of the rich culture of the region.
