De­scend­ing to the Bot­tom

China Scenic - - Special Report -

The open­ing of Luo­quanya Tiankeng is a reg­u­lar el­lipse with its long­est axis at 200 me­ters and the short­est is 120 me­ters. Seen from above, the tiankeng’s bot­tom is cov­ered by dense pri­mary for­est, but what is hid­den by for­est could only be seen af­ter we ap­proached to the bot­tom. To do this, we de­scended over 150 me­ters, and when we were close to the bot­tom, we could see that there were smaller col­lapses on the land.
