[en] Abstract: This poster relates the results of the Belgo-Serbian explorations on the massif of
Durmitor (Montenegro) since 2008. These explorations were only possible thanks to the Serbian cavers of ASAK that we met in Lazareva, training camp in Serbia. Thereafter, the Serbian cavers gave us the opportunity of an exploration on the massif of Durmitor. For the Belgian cavers, this exploration was part of the federal training project Explo2009, whose purpose is to train the young cavers underground exploration.
Regarding the results of these explorations, this poster details the discovery of the three
main caves: Pedina sa ledom pod Bandijerne, l’ébouleuse and Fliš.
Pedina sa ledom pod Bandijerne has long been known because of its entry porch which can be seen from the camp. With the discovery of a new passage in the chamber that follows the entrance, the exploration of this new réseau was done by the Serbian cavers in 2008 and was continued by the Belgian cavers in 2009, reaching the depth of 141 m.L’ébouleuse, which is near the Minin Bogaz pass, has been discovered in 2009. It has been completely explored in several days, reaching the bottom of the cave at the depth of 113 m.
Last but not least, the main result of these explorations is Fliš. The exploration of this deep cave began in 2009 and is still in progress. The depth of 432 m was reached in 2009 and then 582 m in 2010. This cave is characterized by deep pits in which we can see the sequence of the sedimentary rocks, called Flysch.
