Chinese caving organisations
« on: April 26, 2018, 08:01:26 pm »
Asking on behalf of a friend:

Does anybody know of a Chinese caving organisation please?
I have a student who wants to join a club in his local area but can only find commercial organisations that want to take his money.

He is potentially a good caver and lives in Chongqing area which has a cave large enough to have its own clouds.
Any help will be a start.

Thanks

Hong Meigui have their headquaters in Tongzi near Wulong, a small city near Chongqing and are probably worth getting in touch with. However they're not as active as they were with their most active member going back to the states.

Other than that there are a few western cavers in Chengdu, madphil is probably the person to get in touch with.

That's the base we used when exploring caves over xmas, never saw any of them there but they have a pretty active facebook group.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)
