NACIMIENTO DEL RIO ULUAPAN
For the past several decades, cave explorers have been seeking to understand what
lies beyond el Nacimiento Del Rio Uluapan, one of the most impressive resurgences in
Mexico. Cave exploration in Mexico has brought numerous discoveries from significant
ancient artifacts to the discovery of deep cave systems, some reaching
depths thousands of feet under the arduous jungle terrain of the Sierra Mazateca.
The commanding and unyielding limestone mountains of the Cerro Rabon Plateau
demand an unforgiving commitment to exploration within the world of caving and
cave diving. The Rio Uluapan was no exception as the relentless reputation of
the Cerro Rabon continued to challenge the limits of modern day exploration,
yet a team of cave divers prepared for deep diving, rope access,
and dry caving operations, pushed beyond Sump 1 and Sump 2.
What the team found beyond Sump 1 might be one of the most significant
discoveries in modern day history.
