Journey to Another World: Hang Son Doong (Vietnam) The Largest Cave in The Word

The Son Doong cave in Vietnam is the largest cave in the world. It’s over 5.5 miles long, has a jungle and river, and could fit a forty-story skyscraper within its walls.

However, no person knew any of that except about six years in the past.

The not too long ago discovered cave has been touted as the biggest on this planet, although other caves vie for the title of longest (massive collapse Brownsville, Kentucky nabs that title with about 400 miles of passageways) and deepest (Krubera Cave in the nation of Georgia).

A neighborhood man learned the cave entrance in 1991, however, British cavers were the first to explore it in 2009. Tour corporation Oxalis has been going for walks trial excursions of the cave on the grounds that two summers ago.

The two lucky men and women who’ve entered Son Doong to this point, like photographer John Spies, have emerged with some amazing photos.
