The shack was a real mess. Weeds were starting to grow through the cracks and the decay damage on the wood was really noticeable. There was no door, so anyone could make their way inside the small cabin. She got in, and that’s when she saw a huge hole in the middle. Why would a precarious shed like this have a hidden tunnel? She hung her camera strap on her shoulder and reached for the damp stairs. But she could’ve never predicted she’d find something like this.
Blogger Lana Sator is a thrill-seeking adventurer from Russia who loves spending every waking moment outdoors, with a camera strapped over her shoulder. She loves to snap photos that capture the peace and quiet of being surrounded by nature. So when a friend suggested a lead in the middle of a forest, she was all in. Even though Lana was quite an explorer, she never expected she’d stumble into something like this.

She grabbed her camera equipment and made her way to the Republic of Karelia, which is located on the border with Finland. She was planning on meeting her friend in order to check out the deserted cabin. They were supposed to only make a quick stop, but when she saw the inside, curiosity started to kick in. She looked down, and screamed, “Hello?” which echoed deep inside the hole. No one answered. Lana was dying to know what was hiding underneath.
Lana was quite the adventurer, and she had pretty much seen it all. She’d made her way inside a flooded power plant, an abandoned Soviet rocket factory located in Moscow, and even a neglected iron foundry. Getting inside was never easy, but the girl always figured out a way to break in. Now she was planning to make her way inside this hidden underground cave. But venturing into complete darkness would be no easy task, and she never imagined she’d have so many obstacles.
She started descending through the stairs in complete darkness. Every step of the way, you could hear the damp wood creaking. Suddenly, the air started feeling thicker, and heavier. She held really tight to the ladder, not knowing what she was getting herself into. She could feel the hairs on her arms standing. The brightness from above was starting to dim down. She kept going until she finally felt her feet hitting solid ground. Everything was so quiet, she could only hear herself breathe. She searched for her flashlight, then suddenly she turned it on.
