The Karlukovo cave area is one of the most interesting karst regions in Bulgaria. The Heliktit cave club has been working hard in the region for nearly 40 years, exploring some of the most interesting sites in the area – Bankovitza – Goliamata voda Cave system, Zadanenka Cave and others. The results of these efforts have been published in a number of publications, thus becoming known to the scientific and wider audience. Last but not least, this multi-year work has a crucial role to play in the ecology of the region, which is currently very vulnerable.
