2003 Yunnan Expedition Reports
Yunnan Province, China
|Other Expedition reports (Spain)|
This was a 10-person expedition to carry out further exploration of this very promising area - massive depth potential in a hitherto untouched (by grubby Western speleological hands) limestone massif. The expedition has now returned to the UK.

|15/7/2003||Hilary Greaves||Plans: We'll be out of the country from today until 24 August. Mostly we expect to be based close to the town of Zhongdian in north Yunnan, with two main projects: (i) exploring a resurgence by the Yangtze 20km or so west of Zhongdian, (ii) recceing the mountain range between Zhongdian and the Yangtze, looking for high level entrances. It's also pretty likely that from time to time splinter groups of 2 or more will go off to take an initial look at other areas.|
