dong Liujiawandong - 刘家弯洞

Follow the road from Tianxing towards Qikeng, missing out the first shortcut and taking the one up the left hand side of the same valley instead. Back on the road, take the first major path going off on the left (well before you pass Qikeng). Follow the path towards the farmhouse, but veer off, taking the first path on the left to just before the col. Traverse left 20m at the base of a 2m high crag. The entrance is near a large tree.
Entrance is a 1mx0.5m vertical slot at the base of a small crag. A spider, cricket, and unidentifiable cocoon infested crawl ends at the top of a constricted pitchhead. The belay is a spit with natural backup. This drops to a choss-floored chamber at -3m with a small hole in one corner. A rope protector and deviation off an improvised chock-stone suffice to get down a further 7m past hanging death to to the floor of a well decorated chamber. Here a rift to the south quickly degenerates to a too-tight uphill crawl, while a downhill crawl to the north does the same. No way on. No draft. No prospects. Throughout the cave there were numerous 'creepy crawly things'. The only interest this cave has is for speleobiologists.
