Israel underground activity has started already in the prehistorical ages. But back then and even much later the activity was limited to a very functional usage such as for residence or refuge. Documented cave research has started only in the 18th and 19th century mostly in the archeological aspect and later in the 20th century on many other aspects. We have taken on ourselves to carry on the task of cave exploration on all aspects.
We adopted vey strict ethics that sees the man who visits the cave as a guest that must respect his hosts . We are limiting visits in sensitive caves by keeping their location in secret and limiting our own visits to the minimum required to explore the cave.
On the technical side we have established a standard for 3 levels - Cave explorer 1,2 and 3. We require people on the club to do constant training and courses.
