Yogoluk Sinkhole

One of largest sinkholes in the world is Yogoluk Sinkhole (Gua Yogolok) in Papua province, northern side of Wamena valley.

This area is rich with karst features - here are known more than 50 caves, often adorned with amazing speleothems. In Wamena karst are found several giant sinkholes as well, reaching up to the size of tiankeng (a giant sinkhole, at least 100 m deep and wide).

One of such sinkholes is Yogoluk Sinkhole, formed by a collapse of giant cave room.
