The mountainous terrain in northern Laos where our caves are located.

The terrain over much of central and northern Laos is very rugged and carbonate rocks are widespread. We are working in the Houaphan and Oudomxai provinces of northern Laos where we visited several caves during two field seasons. We are collaborating with dedicated cavers from the Northern Lao European Cave Project who have been instrumental in planning and conducting our fieldwork.
