Hong Meigui Yunnan 2003

This was a follow-up to expedition Ref 02/48, planned to obtain a better understanding of the caves in the extensive mountain area between Jinsha Jiang and Zhongdian in North Yunnan. A total of 57 cave entrances were logged, mostly at altitudes between 3,800m and 4,200m, and although the greatest depth achieved during the trip was only 75m, a large resurgence cave which could not be entered in the high-water summer conditions indicated considerable further potential. So excited was the team that a return visit is already being discussed.
