A team of local and foreign cave experts has been exploring the Tham Luang- Khunnam Nang Non cave, in the Mae Sai district of Thailand’s northern province of Chiang Rai, with the mission to create the first detailed map of the cave complex.

 

One of the experts, Mr. Chaiporn Siripornpaibul, told a Thai PBS news team, which joined the exploration, that the project will take about two years and is intended to discover more information about the cave system, including detailed mapping of the complex, to be used for proper and efficient management of the cave for environmental, ecological and tourism purposes.

 

After Tham Luang, he said 20 more of the over 5,000 caves in Thailand would be explored for similar purposes.

Two years, why will it take so long, unless it is a very complex system it just takes a few days.
