3D Mapping of Caves

22nd May, 2013

Man made cave systems lining ancient or historic trade routes are a common feature of the Mustang region of Nepal.  Approximately 10,000 caves exist in this region but relatively few have as yet been explored.  The rock is extremely friable and erosion rates are high. LandScope was involved in the 3d mapping of cave systems at approximately 3400m which has produced a plan that will be available long after the caves themselves are no longer present.
