Aven du Basset - Herault


Hi All,

Bit of a long shot - does anybody have any information about the Aven du Basset in the Herault?

Apparently its a > 2km long >150m deep cave with a great river

I've found a reference in Speleo Magazine 59 (which i've not got so its unclear if this gives enough information to do the trip)

But it sounds like a great trip 

Any info gratefully received


we have visited that cave with the club in 2007. Try to contact the local caver Christophe Bes for more information.

An ohter must see is the cave: Vent d'anges,

in our avalonflash nr 13 there are two photo's taken in aven du Basset (page 7-8) and a short trip report in dutch.


Also take a look at their site http://www.soulanes.fr/ where you can find all info for a visit to Vent d'anges and Castanviels .  Castanviels is magnificant sporting vertical cave.
