Cave Exploration in Southeast Asia’s Most Pristine Environment, Laos

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 @ 5:30 PM-8:30 PM

Presenter: Aaron Addison, International Explorer

In 2006, field reconnaissance revealed a massive limestone cave in the Khammouane Province of central Laos. An international team of explorers returned in early 2008 to document this world-class river cave system. Over 11km of cave passages were surveyed and photographed in just nine days. A better understanding of the region and its people was also achieved. Much of central Laos has been closed to outside visitors for almost 50 years. Based on the findings of the 2008 expedition, a return trip is planned to document other caves in the region.
