Cave description:
The cave entrance is located in Huajian village; it is developed inside a cone-karst, well recognizable from the main road. The entrance is the cross section of a phreatic gallery with 5-6 m diameter, 200 m long, quite regular in its first section, where it is sinusoidal with -6/+6 vertical range. This first section is characterized by eroded breccia, substituted by clastic deposits and clay down the gallery. The last section shows tectonic alterations, such as a terminal rubble mound and some collapse chambers inhabited by a bat colony.
