These spectacular ice caves deep below a Swiss glacier have been mapped, photographed and surveyed for the first time.

A team of eight descended into the moulins – vertical shafts – below the Gorner Glacier near Zermatt in October.

Their work inside the remarkable icy caverns will help researchers get a better understanding of glaciers and their rate of melting.

Wow those look incredible. Thought I wouldn't fancy slipping and falling down one of those icy crevices.

τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.
