A team of speleologists accidentally came across a huge cave system in Chongquing province (China). The cave turned out to be so large and closed off from the outside world that it has its own microclimate, with its own weather, levels of vegetation, even its own little cloud.
As speleologist Niubizi Tian Keng says: “This area has long been known for its caves, most of the small caves nearby were used by miners for nitrate extraction, but have never been properly explored.”
A team of speleologists managed to conduct the first studies on the study of one of the largest caves in the world, make basic measurements, draw topographic maps and finally capture everything on a camera.

We invite you to enjoy the miracle of nature:

The underground camp is equipped with everything necessary for life, hot tea, food and hammocks for sleeping. Exploring the cave without going to the surface is better than spending several hours making your way from the entrance.
American speleologist Erin Lynch looks into the void and the unknown at a depth of 240 above the ground.
Giant stalagmites in the middle of the hall.

Estimate the volume of the hall, more than one house will fit there.
