The Association La Venta is a research group that organizes and runs various geographical exploration projects with particular attention to the underground world. Such projects are carried out using a multi-disciplinary approach, developing new ideas and using new research and dissemination strategies. To achieve this goal, La Venta uses human resources and techniques acquired over twenty years of research carried out in extraordinary environments such as rain forests, depths of glaciers, remote mountains and endless underground labyrinths.

On our way back to Rome we can not do without thinking about what we leave behind. In fact, as often happens, the last two days of the expedition were full of surprises and left us much to think about for the next year.
After a few days, during which the team in Pinlaung has been engaged in recognitions that led to minor results, we decided to go back to an old local reporting: sink hole Hti Ngut.
On the second day of the work the transverse that leads over the waterfall is finished, now all around us are just damp and mossy concretions on which the anchors do not hold up, to look for the rock beneath the concretions is useless, they are too thick. With another small passage we reach a plate of good rock for the anchors, here we see the vertical and a terrace down below us that allows us to get over the waterfall, at least if not dry at least out of the water jet. The start the descent to the side of this river that rushes headlong, raising puffs of water spray. The descent continues and even if damp there are no problems. We arrive at the base of the jump, after a thirty meters of vertical in the void, a concretion allows us to arm a transverse to bring us away from the stream of the water, and finally we are at the base of the shaft over the waterfall that in front of us creates a barrier and that has prevented the passage during the first explorations.
