This is Esa’ala cave…  located in Papua new guinea, there are number of caves in Papua new guinea and in world, Esa’ala cave is the deepest cave in the world, this cave is also known as mother of all caves.

  In 1998 the team of 13 peoples went inside to discover more about this cave. Unfortunately Only 1 of them survived the other 12 people were dead their, perhaps This cave is still 70% unexplored. No one knows the exact depth of this cave. According to the team went inside this cave has 100km depth but the actual depth is still unexplored,

Unfortunately the weather was not pleasant and so came up with a Storm. Ropes were broken and the way of going out was blocked, The team of around 6 to 8 peoples went inside the water because they had no chance and the team kept moving on until they find a way to get back from the deep ocean, only one of them survived. He discovered the way out of the cave from the ocean.

Sanctum movie is all based on this cave and inspired by true events happened with that team. If you are interested to know further about what happened next with the team. Then you should not miss the movie (sanctum).

After reading  blog and watching sanctum movie you must have found mistake in this blog. I wrote team of 13 peoples and in the movie there were only 6 people who went inside the water. But actually the movie team were having only 6 professional divers. It was also a good challenge for 6 divers to go in the Mexico cave which is also known as cave of swallows .This movie was made in Mexico desert after completing the movie it was edited.

In 1797 there was a Poem written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. In this poem he told about this cave knows  (Kubla khan) . Kubla Khan, and the Pains of Sleep in 1816. According to Coleridge’s Preface to Kubla Khan, the poem was composed one night after he experienced an opium influenced dream after reading a work describing the Tartar king Kublai Khan. Upon waking, he set about writing lines of poetry that came to him from the dream until he was interrupted by a person from Porlock. The poem could not be completed according to its original 200-300 line plan as the interruption caused him to forget the lines. Although the specific details of Coleridge’s Preface are debatable, he most likely composed Kubla Khan during autumn 1797 but left unpublished and kept for private readings until 1816 when, on the prompting by George Gordon Byron, it was made available to the public…..

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round:
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery,
