Amazing underground landscape in Hubei
There is a 290-meter deep karst sinkhole near the village of Luoquanyan in Xuan'en county, southwestern Hubei province. The naturally formed limestone cavity is nothing but a botanical delight. Due to its undisturbed location and favorable growing conditions, the sinkhole has developed a thriving ecosystem that was hidden from the public’s eye. Although the sinkhole was discovered decades ago, only a handful of people have ever plumbed its difficult-to-reach depths. (Photo/Xinhua/Song Wen)

Amazing underground landscape in Hubei
在湖北西部山区的宣恩县,有一个深达290多米的喀斯特天坑。天坑位于宣恩县锣圈岩村,天坑底部面积近百亩,四周植物茂密,坑内峭壁森然,除绳降外无法进入,数十年来很少有人涉足,因此保存着相对独立的生态系统。

与之相邻、长达3公里的地下溶洞内钟乳石、石笋、溪流等自然景观千姿百态,神秘而秀丽。
