About this book

Language: English

This volume has in-depth descriptions of over 350 cave/karst sites and also includes the historical surveys of the British expeditions in the 1940s led by E.A.Glennie. Too many caves are unmapped yet. Consequently, this publication is a unique source for future explorers striving for improvements.
