Descent into the abyss, October 15

15 Oct 2013

A team of expert cavers and photographers had the surprise of their life when they stumbled across a vast subterranean cave in Chongqing municipality. Robin Shone – a caver and photographer from Manchester in the UK – was part of the 15-member team that discovered and explored the cave during a month-long expedition. Shone took these pictures – the first taken of the huge cave – which show how difficult it was for the team to get into the natural wonder.
