Can anyone enlighten me as to who discovered/explored the Hang Tean cave system in Vietnam 2005 please. It's believed to have been a team from the UK

Howard and Deb Limbert would be a good place to start.

Spoke with Deb Limbert in Vietnam a few moments ago.

Hang Tean was first discovered on the 1994 Vietnam Cave Project expedition.  There are effectively two caves separated by a dry valley and the second of these has been explored more recently 2015/16.  Each cave is roughly 2.5km long. They do have a vietnamcaves.org website but the recent discoveries have not been updated on it yet.  Hang Tean has been incorporated into a new commercial tour run by Oxalis.

Hope that helps
