WoGE #407

After (almost) giving up (thinking in the million Pacific islands) of #406 I noticed the small island in the lake on an island (in the lake on an island in the ocean) and remembered - Islandception. (Later, I searched GoogleImages and, there it was ...)

Veidos brought us a shallow volcano, so ... let's climb to #407! ;)

This is not classic, is, more likely, a breakthrough!

So ... for you, new players to Where on (Google) Earth, simply post a comment with latitude and longitude and write something about the geology in the picture. If you're the first, you get to host the next one.

Now, that I know a little bit more of the clues/hints/tricks of the game I consider this one (snow and a lot of green) a bit easy, so ...  I'll give rookies a chance - I invoke Schott's Rule: former winners have to wait 1 hour for each WoGE they got right.

Rules, tips and previous WoGEs are collected by Felix on his blog and a KML file is available with all WoGEs.

  1. 43.4305°, 40.3202° Krubera Cave, Abkhazia, Georgia. It is the deepest-known cave in the world. The difference in the altitude of the cave's entrance and its deepest explored point is 2,197 ± 20m. The entrance is 2250 metres above sea level. The surface of the 13 km distant Black Sea is therefore only around 60m deeper. Very likely there are more deeper parts of the cave, which are currently unknown.

    The cave is located in the Arabkia Massif, a large high-mountain limestone karst massif which is composed of Lower Cretaceous and Upper Jurassic limestones. (all this from:,

  2. Right on!
    2 weeks ago I stumbled upon my "neighbor", Ana Sofia Reboleira, and her discovery of the World's deepest land animal - a beautiful karst landscape deserved a "WoGE"!

    By the way Felix (and others WoGEists), was this #407 a hard one? Or are we in a "drought"? I mean, this one, with snow and a lot of green is, to me, a lot easier than, for example, this one!

    Felix, use the helmet-mounted light and enlighten us your next step!

  3. New Woge will be on the air today, Wednesday at around 19:00 - 21:00 GMT

    Your Woge was not easily found, as the mountain looks totally different with a scale >9500m, because of the snow and two different pictures. I, and all the others, were scanning with a scale of 10.000 or 20.000 and missed the place. After I went down to a scale of 5.000 and scanning just over the most probable areas (Caucasian Mountains, parts of SE Europe, parts of the Alps and Pyreneans) I've found it.
