East Shan State, Myanmar 2019–2020: New Longest Cave

An international team of cavers from Myanmar, Germany, Britain, and America journeyed to East Shan State in Myanmar from late December 2019 to early January 2020. After 3 days arranging permissions and permits, the team met with great success by documenting the longest cave in the country. Som Hein Cave near Monghpyak is well known in the East Shan region for spiritual reasons. Cavers had only 9 days to survey and photograph the complicated cave system.
