A New World Found Underneath China

Explorers discover a lost world with thick cloud and fogs trapped inside

From: DailyMail | By SARAH GRIFFITHS 

  • The cave system was discovered in the Chongquing province of China by a team of cavers and photographers
  • Caver Robbie Shone, from Manchester, said a few of the caves had previously been used by nitrate miners but had not been properly explored
  • The network, which includes ‘cloud Ladder Hall’ measuring around 51,000 metres squared, has water sources and vegetation of the floor

Adventurers have stumbled across a cave so enormous that it has its own weather system, complete with wispy clouds and lingering fog inside vast caverns.

A team of expert cavers and photographers have been exploring the vast cave system in the
Chongquing province of China and have taken the first-ever photographs of the natural wonder.

They were amazed to discover the entrance to the hidden Er Wang Dong cave system and were stunned when they managed to climb inside to see a space so large that it can contain a cloud.

Photographer and caver Robbie Shone, from Manchester, was part of a team of 15 explorers on a month-long expedition that discovered the hidden system.
