Dr Joerg Dreybrodt
The vast area of in the tropical Myeik archipelago with eighthundredfour islands is located in southern Myanmar, not far from Phuket. A British recon trip in 2003 confirmed karst on some of them. This is the story of a spontaneous caving trip struggeling to get on the islands. We got stranded on the road,walked to seashore villages, waited for the tide, got on a tiny boat and found caves. But not where we expected them.
