Gouffre Mirolda is the deepest cave of France, located in the Savoy Alps, in the village of Samoëns, near the Italian and Swiss borders.
In 1998, the French-English team got to a depth of 1626 meters after staying underground for almost 103 hours and the cave at that moment became the deepest cave in the world. New measures and explores have been done on January 2003, and the depth of this cave has been increased to 1733 meters. This makes it the 3rd deepest cave in the world (after the Krubera (Voronja) Cave in Georgia – 2191m and Illyuzia-Mezhonnogo-Snezhnaya Cave in Georgia – 1753m) and the deepest cave in Europe.
