Dear friends in mountains & caving!
I warmly invite You to participate on the 53rd Caving Week of the Slovak Speleological Society, which will be held in polish part of the High Tatra Mts. near the city of Zakopane (Poland) from August 1st to 5th, 2012. During the meeting we plan plenty of high-mountain surface & caving trips, see the detail programme in annex here. The Tatra Mts. is taken as the smallest high-mountain of the world, which peaks tower above the area of two states (Slovakia & Poland) to the high of 2655 m a.s.l. The caves in programme belong to the longest and deepest caves not only in Tatra Mts., but also in whole the Poland. The SRT equipment is recommended in few localities, but it is necessary, together with excellent caving skills, only in few cases. Most of caves here are horizontal shaped and therefore not difficult. On the other hand, few of them are the most difficult caves in Tatra Mts., but the caving trips will be not oriented neither to the deepest points, nor to the most distant parts of them. There will be organized here also many of popular-scientific, speleological and nature protection events & lectures, SRT techniques training & exhibitions, selling the speleo material, books & equipment during the Caving Week. If You´ll decided to come, please, contact me via e-mail and I´ll register You (the list of participants is necessary to know before starting of the Caving Week bcs. of agreement of Nature Protection in the National Park of High Tatras). We are looking forward to Your attendance!
on behalf of Organizing committee
