AREA 35: Meo Vac North - Xa Thueng Phung

PB1: Italians cave

Development: 201 m
Denivelation: -47 m

This cave was visited by Italian cavers in 1997. It is a big porch next to the road from Dong Van to
Meo Vac and about 6 km from Dong Van. A small river disappears in the entrance of the cave. A
large gallery with some passages down blocks ends after 200 m in a sump. The water reappears just
before the sump. We measured the cave since the data of the Italians seem to be inaccessible. It is
interesting to note that the cave develops in the south west west direction. This means that it does not
develop in the direction of the nearby Nho Que river.
