Description 1

From Tianxing village follow road north for 200m to path descending steeply on the right hand side. Where the path levels off, descend through fields to a bamboo stand. The entrance is through the bamboo, but above the valley floor at the edge of a field.

5m high, 2m wide walk-in entrance leads down over a slope of mud and medical waste to a chamber with the remains of a concrete wall. The passage briefly narrows, and beyond it is sizeable canyon passage: 3m wide and over 10m high, with a flat floor of wet mud. After 50m the passage abruptly terminates at a floor-to-ceiling calcite blockage. This cave runs southwest, parallel to Acheron in Qikeng Dong
