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

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.
