Photos - Cave Diving in Yunnan, China
Our tanks have made the 1,500km journey from Guangzhou to Yunnan. That was the easy part: the last couple of kilometers were a bit more challenging.
While the tanks and other scuba equipment got a ride on boats, for divers and climbers, it was a half an hour hike. The path was occasionally a bit narrow and slippery, and with 30m drop on one side, not exactly relaxing.
The height difference from Fuxian lake to the cave entrance is only 24m (about an 8-storey building), but with ropes and tanks to carry, it wasn't an easy climb.
Gallup takes a rest while Club 1722 members start setting up abseiling lines. A local mountain climbing and cave explorers' club assited us to get down to the water.
