‘World’s longest salt cave’ found in Israel

The cave named Malham, stretching over 10 kilometers (6.25 miles), runs through Mount Sodom, Israel’s largest mountain, and spills out to the southwest corner of the adjacent Dead Sea.

Yoav Negev, founder of the Israel Cave Explorers Club, joined forces with Boaz Landford, a researcher at the university’s research center, to organize a delegation of eight European spelunkers and another 20 locals.

They spent some 10 days mapping the cave in 2018.

A second 10-day expedition in 2019 with 80 local and international spelunkers completed the measuring and mapping of the cave with lasers, determining its length at over 10 kilometers.
