Exploring the Flooded Cave Systems of San Men Hai, Guangxi Province, China [nggallery id=22]

Exploring the Flooded Cave Systems of San Men Hai, Guangxi Province, China At the invitation of the Chinese Government, the multi-national Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) team, including Explorers Club Fellows Jarrod Jablonski, Casey McKinlay and Australian Explorers Club Chapter member Steve Trewavas, recently completed its 4th expedition to the remote, karst region of South Central China. The mission: to explore, map and unlock the underwater mysteries of San Men Hai, located within the massive Fengshan Karst National Geo-Park. The mysterious underwater rivers, world renowned dry caves and breathtaking pinnacle karst landscape presented formidable logistical challenges for the GUE team as they worked to physically connect the massive, flooded underwater cave systems, map the flooded chambers and gather water quality and water flow data in an effort to support the Chinese government's pursuit of UNESCO world heritage site designation in addition to baseline measurements necessary for future protection of these unique and vulnerable natural resources.  Huge thanks to the DUI team for their support.
