Description 1

Down steps from show cave, turn right on old road and carry on to just beyond the zip wires where the road turns sharp left above a cliff. Scramble down just before roadside bollards to cave entrance about 30m above Furong Jiang. Now underwater.

A gated entrance leads to a big chamber with a huge stalagmite boss. The cave is a flood overflow for an unseen resurgence that is thought to enter the Furong Jiang below the surface of the river. In wet weather water resurges from the entrance of English Speakers Cave and the entrance chamber floods to the roof. This resurgence is probably the destination for the water that rises into the bottom of the big pit in the Furong Dong extension.

From the entrance chamber there are parallel routes to the left and above, linked in several places to create a maze. It is not clear where the water rises. Down on the left there is a low, wet passage with a small possibility of a continuation beyond the wet section. The main route leads straight on to a rising passage ending in an inclined bedding plane that is too tight.
