About the caves
  • The cave systems of Southern China are unique in all aspects. They are perforating a huge mountain landscape called The South China Karst. This geological formation covers an area of more than 500 thousand square kilometers. A significant part of the unique landscape of the South China Karstwas, deservedly, selected by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 2007. Untouched majestic nature, tremendous dry and underwater cave systems, mountain plateaus, rock formations, springs, rivers and lakes, exotic flora and fauna: all of this makes China the new Mecca for cave diving trips and expeditions.
  • Cave diving, and in general the study of cave systems, is still in its infancy in China. This means that most caves have not even been discovered yet. The area where these caves may be, is immense. Just think about it - 500 thousand square kilometers of karst landscape. Just imagine: hundreds of caves, all different and most are absolutely virgin. Nobody has ever set foot in them.The variety of these caves alone is impressive.From small, shallow systems, to giant tunnels, halls and bottomless dips. The study of these caves have led to the discovery of new endemic species of animals, specifically freshwater jellyfish, in one of the caves of Duan. And apart from being naturally fascinating, many caves house artifacts (some yet to be discovered) from China’s past. For example, the BBC produced a film about the artifacts of the Green Skull Cave.
The underwater caves of the South China Karst
can be classified into 3 groups:
Caves that have almost been completely explored
In these caves we can find already-installed gold-lines, jumps and arrows. There are descriptions and maps. There are not so many of these caves, but they are there. Usually they are shallow and the visibility inside is good. The difficulty level is easy: Intro 2 Cave (or equivalent) and higher.
Caves that have not been completely explored
In these caves there is a first line, but there are also unexplored halls and corridors. Of all the caves in which current exploration is conducted, they are in the majority. The difficulty level is middle: Intro 2 Cave (or equivalent) and higher.
New cave systems in which exploration has just begun
The number of these caves is great, but the exact amount and conditions of diving are unknown. Here, a new and mysterious world is waiting for you. A real "Terra incognita" of cave diving. The difficulty level is high: Full Cave (or equivalent) or Expedition Cave Diving.
For every level of certification, there are caves suitable for you! Of course, we offer a full range of cave diving courses from the very basics to the cave diving expeditionary level. We can say with confidence: China is the future of cave diving! No more, no less!

Maxim Vasiljev
TDI/SDI Instructor Trainer, TDI Full Cave Instructor, Rebreather Instructor etc.
I have been diving for more than 20 years and my experience is approximately 4500 dives. At least 90% of these dives were deep technical and cave dives. In addition, I am a developer of equipment for diving, such as rebreathers ("Hyperion"), scooters, underwater lights and other. I have done many dives into new unexplored caves and made their research and cartography. At the moment the main area of my cave diving activity are Chinese caves. I'm sure this is a future of cave diving.
