Yangtze Gorges Caves 1994

A period of five weeks was spent exploring caves in Sichuan Province, central China. Near the town of Xin Long they surveyed a cave that proved to have a depth of 931m and is hence the deepest known cave in China. Further south, several other deep caves were explored but lack of time prevented these from being 'bottomed'.
