    Deepest dive in a Chinese Cave

    Hello

    at the end of october and beginning of november 2012 a team of french caves divers realized 12 days of exploration in South China. For the second year our team explore Duan's caves in south Guangxi.

    You would found some pictures on our website expeduan (sorry it's only in french...!) or on the facebook page

    We have realized the deepest dive in a China Cave in Daxing Spring. 2 divers reach the 121 meters point in a 3 hours dive. We have realized a small movie of this 121 meters dive, you can take a look on caveXplorer
    We have also sound the bottom of the cave, it'ld be more than 157 meters deep...!

    All the team dive with rebreathers, 2 Kiss, 3 latteral Joky and 1 Evolution. The 121 meters dive in Daxing was performed with the Evolution and with a Joky rebreather.

    Thank you very much for you interest in the project.

    Best regards

    Congratulations on the dive...

    I have read the report from the GUE expedition in March 2012 where they laid line to 75m in two caves at Da Xing.

    It sounds like the cave just drops straight down from 75m to 121m, do you have a surveyed map of the entire cave yet?

    You can take a look at the section of the first tunnel pool :
    daxing topo | Expé Duan

    In Daxing spring, 5 tunnels arrived in the spring....! 2 very big and very deep (Tunnel C and B) The 121 meters dive was in Tunnel B. 1 more horizontal just down the stairs of the pool (Tunnel A). And 2 small in the middle of the pool...! (E & D)
    I believe it'ld be many dives and many work for many years...!

    I join a scetch of the spring for a better understanding.

    Thank you all for your comments.

    Best regards
