United States’ Carlsbad Caverns National Park, in 1986 a special event took place. An until-then relatively unknown area known as Lechuguilla Cave   was explored more thoroughly.    It turned out that Lechuguilla is the fifth longest cave   now known to exist in the world and also is now considered one of the most pristine and unique because of its historic lack of human visitors.
