Liao Jing Ling Dong (GZ/Qx/24)
Guizhou, Qianxi County, Honglin Town
N 27° 07’ 43.4’’ E 105° 52’ 09’’
Altitude: 1500 m a.s.l.
Cave length: 345 m
Vertical range: -20 m about
Exploration: Guizhou 2001
Surveyors: L. Latella, G. Gozzo (16 Nov. 2001)
Type of research: biological
The entrance of the cave is a 13 m deep doline doline located in Honglin village near a small building used as a food factory. Two galleries branch off at the bottom of the doline; the upper one ends in a choke from which a trickle of water seeps and disappears among the clastic debris, re-emerging along the lower gallery which ends, after few meters, in a siphon. The cave discharge during low rains is directly connected with the factory operations, because the waste water from potato washing is disposed of in the cave. On this basis, we hypothesized that Liao Jing Ling Dong might be connected with Xi Xian Dong, another important cave in the area, where the main inflow stream has water with the same characteristics.

Results of the 13 expeditions organized by the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale ofVerona to southern China. One-hundred-twenty-five caves were explored, for a total of more than 60 km inlength. For each cave we list the progressive number, the cadastral number, the type of research conducted and ashort description of the cave. Most of the caves are located in Guizhou Province, in Qianxi County. The hydrogeology,biology, geography and archaeology of the area were investigated during the scientific expeditions. 40 pages, No caves maps, 21 photos.
