“Vietnam underground: The Viet Cong, spelunkers and the biggest cave on earth” presentation by National Geographic writer Mark Jenkins @ Sheridan Junior High School Early Auditorium
Mar 11 @ 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The University of Wyoming World to Wyoming lecture series will feature Mark Jenkins at 7 p.m. March 11 at the Sheridan Junior High School Early Auditorium.

Jenkins, from National Geographic writer and UW, will present “Vietnam underground: The Viet Cong, spelunkers and the biggest cave on earth.”

Hidden deep in the jungles of central Vietnam, on the edge of the Truong Son Mountains, is a network of massive caves. Created by underground rivers cutting their way through limestone, most of these caves remain unexplored. In the past two decades, a highly accomplished team of British spelunkers have been penetrating ever deeper into these gigantic caverns.

Jenkins was invited on an expedition to descend into what would turn out to be the largest cave ever discovered, Hang Son Doong. Exploring this cave was so treacherous and difficult the team actually lived underground for days to complete the first descent.

In his presentation, Jenkins will take the audience across Vietnam — a vibrant country finally thriving after decades of war — and into the dark belly of the earth.

The event is free and open to the public.

For additional information, contact Manuela Hofer-McIntyre at 307-766-3415 or mhoferm1@uwyo.edu.

The SJHS is located at 500 Lewis St.
