4-6 week delivery time. 212 pages, numerous maps & surveys; Berlin 2007. J. Masschelein; V. Coessens; D. Lagrou; M. Dusar & Tran Tan Van (eds.). Nothing less than over 92 km of passages from 270 caves. Including the deepest cave of northern Vietnam (Cong Nuoc, -600 m). A standard reference work on karst and caves of northern Vietnam. In English language, with a German, French, Flemish and Vietnamese abstract. This report has been compiled from the results of eight Belgian-Vietnamese speleological expeditions to the NW of Vietnam between 1993 and 2006. Karst and caves of five provinces were studied with the provinces of Son La and Lai Chau having been subject of the most detailed investigations, which have led to a long-term development project in both provinces. During the expeditions 270 caves were explored. In total over 92 km of cave passages were surveyed. Amongst them is Cong Nuoc Cave in the Tam Duong area at a depth of -600 m, currently the deepest cave on the mainland of Southeast Asia. The longest cave surveyed so far is the 2,920 m long Noong Khat. 24 caves at a length of over 1 km were found. 265 caves were mapped in the provinces described in this publication. Two other caves were also added to the list of investigated caves: Xa Xa Pin 2 in the Dong Van area, surveyed by a previous Italian expedition, as well as Cau Cuoi in the Yen Bai province. On the way between Son La and Hanoi two more caves (Co Du and Hang Nghiem) were explored in the Moc Chau area in 1997. In 2001 a further cave (Nam Phe 1) was surveyed in the Nam Phe area of the Tam Duong region, which is located north of the areas that were studied in the Lai Chau province. This brings the total of described caves to the nuuber of 270.
