In 2000 a cave was discovered in Mexico with features unlike anything ever seen before.  It is filled with enormous crystals, some reaching 39 feet long; larger than ever imagined possible.  The cave environments is  extremely dangerous and deadly.  The National Geographic created this fascinating documentary about the scientists who explored this remarkable natural phenomena.

These are all great documentaries about caves and professional caver explorers: Journey Into Amazing Caves, Cave of forgotten Dreams, What a way to spend a Sunday, Extreme cave diving, Underground Adventure: Spelunking
