Small entrance at the base of a 5m cliff leads down a steep boulder slope, underneath a showerbath, to walking sized passage with many small inlets. Active stream passage continues downstream for 100m, to the head of a 5m pitch which has not been descended.

1km from Gu Bo Niu Fang village. From the village, follow the main track, and the cave is 30m off on the right, at the base of a 5m high limestone outcrop. Small entrance leads down a steep boulder slope, underneath a showerbath, to walking sized passage with many small inlets. Active stream passage continues downstream for 100m, to the head of a 7m pitch. Below this a short climb, approximately 2m, requires a hand line. The next pitch is bypassed by climbing to the left away from the water and down (C6). When the passage rejoins the water two wet pots (P12, P6) are encountered. These were dealt with by traversing round to the left and placing a bolt. At the bottom of the second pot two more climbs are found before a long slope down to a rock floored chamber. Here the water disappears into the floor and the way on is a low crawl which heads off to the left. Following a short climb (C1) the water is met again and more cascades (C4) follow until arriving at an obvious pitch (P4) with an inlet opposite. The next wet pitch can be free climbed (C4, C2) by traversing over the top. At the bottom there is a large pool which can be avoided by climbing through a window and just after this the final sump is reached. RGe, HG (2003); FL, RGa, CJ, PT (2004)
