Description:
Tunnel slump and tunnel cavity opening. Several shallow pits with large rhododendron trees growing with them that line up and lead to a very large and deep depression (slump pit). This depression is circular with very steep inverted sides and collapsed earth in the base. Densely vegetated with rhododendrons and pine trees in the large pit in particular. This line of tunnel slump appears to connect to trench (or tunnel?) F827 and also possibly a large tunnel slump pit and cavity located in the middle of the recent fire-break road (pit documented in 2012). This tunnel F828 possibly also connects to tunnel F829, which follows the same north-east
