Approach

Near the village of Mier in lush vegetation.

Entrance

Resurgence

Description

The entrance leads quickly to a U-shaped sump  (20m, -13m). The passage beyond is active only during
floods. A little further on the passage splits.  The right hand passage leads to pools and a stream sinks at the side, reappearing under the entrance boulder choke.
 
The left hand passage (upstream) quickly becomes impenetrable. Sharp razor like limestone.
