Qikeng Dong 2002 Expedition



6 September 2002 - 3 December 2002


Tianxing Village, Jiang Kou Township, Wulong County, Chongqing Municipality, China


In August 2002 Qikeng Dong was pushed to a level of horizontal development at -707m where 2 km of small passage led to a 10m wide streamway, presumed to be the master cave for Tianxing. Qikeng Dong has potential to be China's first kilometer deep cave, but a new dam on the Furong Jiang will reduce it's depth potential in December making it essential to complete exploration in 2002.


Explore up and downstream along Acheron Stremway in Qikeng Dong. Push Qikeng Dong to -800m and beyond.
