End­less Ex­plo­ration

China Scenic - - Special Report -

As the rope slowly goes down, mem­bers of the ex­pe­di­tion team are ap­proach­ing the tiankeng’s bot­tom, step by step. Hid­den in the dense forests of Hanzhong for eons, the tiankeng in the photo wel­comes its first vis­i­tors. In the past, peo­ple liv­ing near the tiankeng knew noth­ing about its hid­den beauty, let alone its sci­en­tific value. Yet now, as more peo­ple de­vote them­selves to ex­plor­ing th­ese huge sink­holes, those mys­ter­ies that were con­cealed for eons are re­vealed and ex­plained one af­ter an­other.
