EuroSpeleo 2016 Sessions

Pester Plateau - A student expedition to Serbia

Session code: OE10

Oral / Exploration, Main EuroSpeleo Conference

Miss Helen Fairclough


In July 2016 a group of enthusiastic student cavers from the UK will head to the Pester plateau, Serbia, in search of new cave passage.
As well as the (hopefully) amazing discoveries that we will make, we will also cover some of the challenges of organizing an expedition which will be the first experience of exploratory caving for two thirds of the team, and forging a relationship with student cavers from the other end of the continent.


Helen has been caving for nearly three years around the UK and has been on expeditions to Spain and Austria (making her one of the more experienced members of the expedition)
