Per­haps More Tiankeng Ex­ist

China Scenic - - Special Report -

At the end of 2016, Shaanxi Govern­ment an­nounced the dis­cov­ery of the Hanzhong Tiankeng clus­ter, which in­cludes 49 tiankeng of all sizes—one “su­per,” 17 large and 31 com­mon. Yet, as sur­veys go deeper and be­come more thor­ough, more sink­holes have been found and are be­ing as­sessed as to whether they meet the cri­te­ria for be­ing a tiankeng. Per­haps in the fu­ture, the num­ber 49 will be up­dated. Th­ese pho­tos present some of the most typ­i­cal tiankeng we have cap­tured by cam­era lens. Each of them is dis­tinc­tive.
