British Team Explore Borneo Caves

BORNEO, MALAYSIA - UNDATED: *** EXCLUSIVE *** Expedition leader, Tim Allen admires a fine shower head formation in Racer Cave in Borneo, Malaysia. This inlet has a direct route to the surface and when it rains water pours from out of its spout. Incredible never-before-seen pictures show the latest British expedition into a never-ending cave network that contains the largest cave chamber in the world, the largest cave by sheer volume in the world, and the largest cave passage in the world. In an historical British venture that stretches back to 1978, the British team has been visiting and attempting to map the twisting chambers of Mulu National Park. With new caves discovered regularly the ever-expanding task of creating a definitive subterranean map just keeps growing. Over 30 years ago the Royal Geographical Society led the first expedition - of which current team member Andy Eavis was part of. Since then over 186miles have been mapped out with the latest team - a group of avid underground scientists and cavers - adding a few more miles. Using lasers and other equipment, they record the dimensions of each unmapped area. This year the intrepid homegrown team also helped Borneo's National Parks authority to help map the area above the caves so tourists trekking between the hundreds of cave mouths know where they are in relation to the caverns below them.
