Explorers Uncover an Entire World inside a Cave (24 pics)

Posted in       7 Oct 2013       15292       9

In the Chongquing province of China, a team of expert cavers and photographers have been exploring a vast cave system called the Er Wang Dong, which was previously been used by nitrate miners but never fully investigated. They were shocked to discover that the cave had its own interior weather system, with spaces so big that clouds and fog were able to form. One cavern in particular measures 51,000 square metres and is aptly named “Cloud Ladder Hall”.

I'm not so fond of the idea of venturing into a cave, but this one looks awesome and I would like go there.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

NASA could easily have taken these pics, published them, and told the world these are on Mars.

And the world would believe it.

I predict that within 5 years, there will be at least 3 Starbucks inside these caves along with a strip mall anchored by a Home depot..
