Lapa Doce, Chapada Diamantina
After the International Course Introduction to the Biology of Caves in Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais, Brazil), Dr. Augusto Auler and the brazilian caver Ezio Rubioli led me more than 1200 km from BH to the incredibles caves of Chapada Diamantina (Bahía, Brazil).

Below the 900 My limestone, Brazil holds some of the world's biggest caves, including the largest cave of south America "Toca da Boavista", 107 km long.
