Abstract

Two caves developed in sandstone are described from southern Meghalaya, northeastern India. Krem (Cave) Pubon is a fault-oriented sub-horizontal, sub-rectangular cave maze containing an active rivulet. Krem Lymbit is a relict horizontal cave, with a form that testifies to the former existence of a more extensive system, now largely eroded. Because both caves are unusual for this region, being developed in sandstone host rock, they are presented in support of the case for future exploration and scientific investigation in this important northeast Indian karst region.
