Discover Son Doong Cave

The huge temperature difference between the air inside and outside creates a constantly hovering cloud of mist that gives rise to a miraculous and surreal atmosphere

The “pearl” of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Son Doong Cave, which has a large, fast-flowing underground river inside, was found by a local resident named Ho Khanh in 1991. It became public after a group of British scientists from the British Cave Research Association, led by Howard and Deb Limbert, conducted a survey in Phong Nha-Ke Bang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in April 2009.

Son Doong contains vast caverns, which fill the 5.5 mile long interior. Imagine trekking straight into the depths of the world’s largest cave on an expedition unlike any other. A cave so massive that a 747 could fly through its largest cavern. A space so mesmerising that it forces you to question whether you are still on this planet at all. Indochina travel Vietnam

Son Doong cave, discovered by a local 18 years ago, is more than 200 meters wide, 150 meters high, and at least 6.5 kilometers long, though the explorers said they were unable to explore it fully. British explorers have recently discovered that Son Doong is much larger than the world’s biggest known cave. The biggest section of Son Dong is five kilometers in length, 200 meters high and 150 meters wide. It is home to a river, jungles, and entire cave ecosystems.

Ropes and harness are needed to get inside Son Doong, and any visitors will need to rappel 80 meters to reach the cave floor. The water and limestone that carved it over millions of slow, patient years have created spectacular and unique formations. Vietnam tours packages
