Ka-Lag Dzonot

I started exploring Ka-Lag Dzonot in February 2013; Robbie Schmittner informed me about the existence of a small well North-West of Chemuyil. Previously explored for a couple of hundred meters and then abandoned.

Entrance is not easy: a 9 meters vertical pit give the access to a huge cavern with an underground lake.

Within fifteen dives I could find three main passages going in different directions: one upstream heading North-North-West and two downstream sections, one towards West and one towards East, this last one with a very weak flow.
The main downstream runs in the direction of a branch of Koox Baal cave system, but still quite far.

Due to misunderstanding with the land owner I was forced to stop the exploration.
In August 2013, the cave measured 4.085 meters/13.402 ft.
For long time I have not tried to find out the connection with Koox Baal cave system due to the cartographic project being conducted in this last cave system by a team of Czech divers.

In May 2016, I decided to have a look on the side of Koox Baal cave system.
Entering from the cenote named Chun Che Chen I swam along the lines installed by the Czech team over 4 years before. I resurveyed part of those to have a georeference on where to look for, then passing a restriction at the end of one of those line, I found another big cave running exactly in the direction of the south-western branch of Ka-Lag Dzonot cave.
Within 2 dive I could find the connection onto my lines laid over 3 years before.

With this last connection 4.643 m / 15.233 feet of underwater cave passages, have been added to the Koox Baal cave system.
