Trip led by Stanisław Kotarba operated in Padurea Criului Mountains between 13 and 21 may 2000. The group visited Sancuta Cave but not far from entrance because of the new sand sifon. The other caves were visited too: Apa de la Bulz Cave (Water Cave near Bulz), Fata Apei Cave (Water Fata Cave), beautiful Osoi din Paenii Cave, Moanei Cave and Ungurului Cave (Hungarian Cave).
But the main goal was to visit The Ponoras Cave. During two visits there was made documentary photographs in the main corridors. Because of localization problems the Pobraz Cave was not found.
