Cave description:
Sinkhole drains a remaining small marly outcrop. Tiao Shuz Dong is a bedding plane cave partly developed at the marl/limestone contact surface. It drains two small swallow holes; a third dry branch connects with surface. Cave In the deeper part receives small inlets in the deeper part. The exploration stopped in a low windy gallery filled by pebbles. Local people use a big pothole filled by water as emergence reservoir. The secondary branch of the cave was probably dug by villagers to find an easier way to reach the underground stream.
