Zusammenfassung

This volume describes the general settings on the speläology of this “caving heaven” in NE India, where international expeditions so far have yielded hundreds of kilometres of fine cave passages. The geography, geology, hydrology, exploration history and many other basics are presented, accompanied by an incredible bibliography. The specific caving regions of Meghalaya will be covered by separate volumes in this series.
