Caving in Java Indonesia
« on: November 03, 2015, 01:59:24 am »
I have just travelled down from Jakarta to Yogyakarta and hope to get in some caves around central java.
I left the srt kit etc in jakarta due to weight travelling around but we have our lights helmets pads for horizontal caves.

Does anyone have any information of cave locations and length?
Any help will be appreciated.

There is a book ...

Indonesia
