Description 1



Hu Dong is located at the base of a 25m high headwall where a surface stream sinks. The entrance is easily accessible from the road on the south side by crossing high above the cliff and descending on the north side of the river.

The wet entrance is reported to continue for 3 km, but was not investigated. The dry entrance is 30m northwest of the sink. It appears to have been dug open or enlarged, as a 3m high stone wall keeps the surrounding hillside out.

Within the cave development occurs along 2 distinct axes: southeast to northwest, and northeast to southwest. 4m wide passage heads southwest. Straight ahead a high lead has not been pushed, while the main route curves to the right, descending to a mud- floored stretch ending at a large, passage-filling boulder. Beyond the cave turns again to the southwest and a floor of small boulders is followed by a straddle over a static pool. Jogging to the northwest, the passage regains its mud, this time as steep banks with a channel cut down the middle. The cave narrows to a rift ending at a 6m muddy climb down (handline and jammer recommended) to a static pool. To the left a step down over a second static pool and short belly crawl leads to a crawlway ending in a sump. To the right a crawlway provides a less pleasant route to the sump. Presumably in dry weather this sump is open, as the locals claim to use this entrance to reach the main Hu Dong streamway.
