In autumn 2012 a group of eight explorers got together and made their way to the heart of the Gorner glacier – the Moulin caves in Switzerland. Just like arteries, the caves are going down into the Gorner glacier. They are able to attract by the frozen beauty, and lure every newcomer further and further. It is quite difficult to overcome their temptations.

The dream of the biggest part of the visitors, who prefer ecological tourism, is to have their own self-dependent journey and to examine the kingdom of the Ice Queen with their own eyes. The caves are about 40 meters deep and for their exploration the pioneers were to spent about 8 hours a day captured by ice, besides, the temperature sometimes has fallen down to -18 degrees.

Paying absolutely no attention to these uncomfortable for people conditions, the explorers were pleased. Their desire to examine some other caves of the same type didn't disappear. The entrance to the Mourlin caves is incomparable to anything they've seen before, as the caves glow with bright-blue light.

For them, the journey was not an exploration, but ecological tourism. The only disadvantage of the ice caves and the advantage at the same time is that the caves possess a property to change. The glaciers are constantly moving, and having noticed this sight once, you may not see it for the second time.
