Yes tim, it is this one.
I have been there , and it is pretty nice. The only problem was that I could not visit it entirely. In fact a landslide ( not sure about this word) has blocked it totally in the estearn part of it.
If you are not afraid of the lack of air and you like to move on your knees, this labyrinth is quite impressive.
By the way Tim, thanks for this link I haven t seen before. It is full of interesting information

Glad it was of help. There is a great deal of intormation on this site that we often overlook- and some great stuff on Ray's site as well.
I doubt that I would venture very far in if I did get to it though, not at all comfortable in small places such as caves.

>Any news about the Labyrinth? <


Don't know whether the following link already had been published here:
www.labyrinthos.ch/

This guy visits the labyrinth several times a year, normally together with friends.
His pages show many unique, detailed pictures of the cave, updated regularly.
He tries to correct and update the existing plans of the labyrinth.
In my opinion this is the person who has the best actual knowledge of that spot.

Presently he tries to find a 3rd entrance, which was reported to him by an inhabitant, to get access to the recently (about 3 decades ago) blocked part of the labyrinth.

Unfortunately it is written in German only (he is Swiss), but the pics are international language :)

Pls enjoy,
Wolfgang

Absolutely fantastic. This is more than news, this is a revelation.

Thank you Wolfgang for sharing this comprehensive information with us.
