The impressive limestone formation has overtaken the 137-mile-long (222-kilometre-long) Clearwater Cave in Malaysia to be the longest of its kind in Asia, said French cave researcher Jean Bottazzi who led a recent exploration.

Previously, the cave was thought to be 124 miles long (200 kilometres), but a 15-day survey this year discovered a further 24 miles (38.48 kilometres) of the limestone maze, according to Chinese news site Global Times.

之前,人们以为双河洞长度仅有200公里(124英里)。今年为期15天的勘查又发现了38.48公里(24英里)。
